Seize the Sketch: hello roses

This is post 1 of 2 for me today...click HERE for my A Blog Name Hero challenge post.

Hello!

We're back with a brand new challenge at



Awesome sketch by my teamie, Jen!

I love how the sketches can be used to do clean & simple designs or something with more layers and embellishments!  Before I get to my card check out spectacular sponsor for this challenge:

Mona Pendleton

The fabulous Mona Pendleton from My Favorite Things is sponsoring Seize the Sketch #7 and provided the team with her beautiful stamps and dies. She is also providing a prize for our winner of Sketch #7!!!

I've been a long time fan of Mona's and was so thrilled to be able to play her stamps and dies!

I decided to go with a purple and gray combo:


I'm not a purple girl but love it teamed up with gray.  Aren't those Contemporary Roses gorgeous?
