I'm back!  This time with a card for the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches where our hostess is one of our camp mums, Jennifer Timko.  And here is her fab sketch:

Once again, I played Stretch the Sketch and modified the size of the circle in Jennifer's sketch😄

This was quite a simple card to make.  I started by masking off the top and bottom of a white card base then I sponged on Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet.  Once I was finished with the blending, I removed the masking tape.  I die-cut the "moon" from black cardstock and liberally spritzed it with shimmer spray then added that to the card with liquid adhesive.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white card and angled one corner.  Card done!

Thanks for visiting!  Head on over and check out the rest of the DTs cards.  You'll be so glad you did!

The ink-blending master strikes again! I love the colors you've used for this and how the die creatively highlights them. Beautifully done, Karren!
