SBS Sketch Challenge #1

SBS has held the first sketch challenge. This is my interpretation. The colors are a little off. The strip behind the flowers is a Certainly Celery. The strip behind that is copper. The flowers were stamped on my painted cloth and cut out. Pretty darn cool, really. The ribbon is orange, from May Arts, but matches the bronze paper, which matches the bronze Lumiere in the flowers

Very fun challenge. I usually don't do sketch challenges because I like to mess around too much. This card is 8.5 x 4.25, to fit in a legal envelope. Fun, but again, the background seems too plain, but I just wanted to really let the flowers show. I'll probably change it.


And now for the fun stuff. Here's the puppy! She's officially ours now. She is the sweetest puppy. She just wants to cuddle and love everyone here. If you are near her, she is laying on you waiting for you to pet her and give her some love. Her name, for now, is Lacey. I wanted to call her Keela, have been calling her Keela for two weeks now, and then we get her and my husband decides he doesn't like it. So we went through about a dozen names. We all seem to be okay with Lacey. Dylan wanted us to call her Tickly since her tail tickles him. My husband keeps calling her Lucy. Grrrrr. Pick a name already!!! Anyway, she is sweet and adorable and lovable. She chews like a puppy so I've been trying to remember not to leave my shoes on the floor. We are all in love with her already. Isn't that face kissable, that is if she wasn't able to lick her own butt?
