InStyle Thankful Thursday Sketch Challenge

Hey Friends! I created this card last night . . .InStyle Stamps host a sketch challenge every Thursday but because I was sick, I didn't have a chance to play along sooner. Last night I finally decided to return to my craft room and create a card for the challenge. Actually, there's going to be a new challenge tomorrow . . so I'm following last week's sketch. Hey, better late than never. You still have the time to play along with last week's challenge. . .there's a prize to be given out. Check out the InStyle Stamps blog for the sketch.

I colored Sasha with my Copic Markers and again, added a bit of SU Crystal Effects to parts of the image. Do you see the blue heart? Well it's a heart embellishment that comes with the InStyle Stamps Inspiration Kit.

The heart was originally white but I colored it blue with my Copic Markers and heat embossed it with SU Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Actually, coloring the plastic embellishment didn't turn out too nicely but when I heat embossed it, the result was a marbled appearance to it so I was happy with the end results.

Are you wondering what happened to my "Photo of the Day" feature on my blog. . .well, when I hurt my wrist, I couldn't hold my camera steady then I caught a cold and was not in the mood to take photos. Besides, it's been raining off and on for the past days. I'll start taking life photos again this weekend.

Anyway, stop by the InStyle Stamps blog and play along in the challenge!!

Hope y'all have a fabulous day!
