Sketch Time...

Good morning everyone!
 It's time for a new challenge at Moving Along With The Times!

This week it's Red's turn to host the challenge and she would like us to CASE one of her very first cards and use it as a SKETCH. This is the card...

and here's my interpretation of the sketch... which I loved! 
My card features an adorable Penny Black image from the "Garden Critters" stamp set! It's stamped with Memento Black ink, colored with Copics and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. The paper is from American Crafts and I used a QuicKutz die for the corner. Added a few pearls, paper pierced the scallops and it's done!

I'd like to enter the (tea cup) card into the following challenges:
2 Cute InkC10- Easter/Use a Bunny
Cards in EnvyAnything Goes with an A2 card
Creative Card Crew- Animals
Delightful- Out like a lamb (add a critter) 
Digi ChoosdayAnimals
HobbycutzGirly but no Pink
Paper Pretties WednesdayPaper Piercing
Penny Black and More- So Sweet (sweet image/animal) entry #3 
Sisterhood of CraftersAnimal

Also, we thought it would be fun for each DT member to post one of their very first cards. So I decided to re-post my very first Penny Black card...
I think my cards & blogging have improved a bit over the years!  Nowadays, if an image needs coloring I use my markers AND most important... I take better pictures of my cards!  Oh, how we Live and Learn! LOL :)

 Well, that's it for today... thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to the challenge blog to see the fabulous creations by the other team members!
