UDI Sketch Saturday

Good morning! Today is Utah Diva's Sketch day on my blog. This week's sketch is pretty universal so I hope you'll check it out HERE!

I used the SU! set called Animal Crackers along with the Tall Tales designer series paper. Oh, we had a challenge this week which is to watercolor. Water coloring is not something that I'm very good at but it is called a challenge isn't it? For my water coloring I used a blender pen and stamp pads with the ink smooshed on the lid of the pad. I used confetti white paper but the correct paper to use for this project would have been the water color paper...I'm sure my coloring would have been much better! *wink, wink*

I have to say that my favorite element of this card is the corduroy button (in chocolate chip) with the linen thread bow...I just think that gives it so much cute!

So, today I'm off to give this card to a mom-to-be this afternoon at her baby shower. So fun!

Have a super day all and don't forget about the new SU! specials that you can see HERE.
