Clearly Delightful Blog Challenge #6


Good Morning! Today, I'm sharing a card made for the Clearly Delightful Blog Challenge #6, sponsored by Doodle Pantry, held on the 5th of each month. The image was illustrated by Laurie Wilson, and is called "Asian Garden." Remember, you can right-click on any photo to view it larger. Pictured below, is the card interior, left blank for whatever sentiment or message I may want to write when I get ready to send the card off in the mail.


Today's challenge is a sketch challenge, as shown below:


For this sketch challenge, I used the bow of the ribbon to satisfy the black oval in the sketch, which is perfectly acceptable! LOL If you'd like to participate in Laurie's challenge, the requirements and details are mentioned here. Your card submission should be in by June 19th to win: a $25.00 GIFT CERTIFICATE from Ellen Hutson or Clear Dollar Stamps or Flourishes...your choice!
