Unscripted Sketches #152

Well as you probably know by now I love Sketch Challenges, and on browsing through some craft links the other day I came across the Unscripted Sketches Site, so I thought I would play along with one of their challenges.



I had been working on putting together some items for an ATC swap and found that I was loving the combination of colours I was using, so just had to use them for this card too!  I have kept it pretty simple.  The raindrop background, umbrella and sentiment are all stamps from the February 2012 Unity KOTM.  I paper pieced the umbrella, and coloured in the raindrops with a combination of blues and some Crystallina Kindy Glitz.  I have changed the sketch turning it from horizontal to vertical and added my sentiment to the middle of the image background.  My ribbed card base is from a card pack I purchased from Time to Create, the pink paper is from Echo Park, the blue and pink dew drops are from The Robin's Nest and the ribbon and flower are from my stash assortment I have purchased over the years.


Because the Unscripted Sketch is posted every Saturday I am thinking I will definitely be able to find time to play along with their challenges again and I am looking forward to it!  

I hope no matter what the season you are in right now that your life is full of blessings and light and stamping!

What a pretty card Danie. You could have created a series - Summer Showers, Autumn Rain Winter Storms Spring Pounders - just to celebrate all the seasons that we have wet weather!
