Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge

This card uses a leftover piece of faux patina cardstock that I created for this card here.  I'd had it sitting on my desk all these months and thought it would work for the Just Add Ink sketch challenge this week.

I cut strips of the faux patina cardstock and layered them on Basic Black, then onto a Soft Suede card base.  The main image comes from Word Play which I colored using markers.  I then cut out using my oval nesties and put through the Designer Frames EF and layered onto a black oval.  The finishing touch is a little Cherry Cobbler flower to match the Cherry Cobbler heart on the sentiment.

Thanks for looking.
