A Sketchy Morning

Hi, everyone!

I woke up this morning with no goal in mind for my day, so I decided that creating a card using some of my scraps would consume my morning. I'll do something productive around the house afterward. Balance is important, and I'm not always very good about balancing my crafty time with my household duties, can't you relate?! lol!

The other day I had picked up this cute image and sentiments from the From the Heart Digi Stamps store. I had entered him into their Stamp of the Month Challenge, and now I've re-colored him, a bit lighter this time, and am using him in their Weekly Sketch Challenge. This is for Sketch 055. You can find this image in their store HERE.

Like I had mentioned, I used some scrap pieces of designer paper, and even card stock for this. I added some of my trusty Stickles, Star Dust (I'm almost out! I think I've had this bottle for three years, can you believe it?!) to the candle flame and drippings, and the three rhinestones from my stash/collection also give it a bit of bling.

Starting next week, their challenges are going to require that you use a FTH digi, so if you like what they offer, but don't have any yet and want a chance to win some, this is the last week you can enter the challenge using any image.

Here's the sketch to follow:
