Stamping Bella Challenge on SCS

I have been wanting to play in the Stamping Bella challenges before but never could figure out where the challenges were on the Stamping Bella blog. And now I found that there is a Stamping Bella challenge on SCS, so I thought I'd play along.

This week the challenge is a sketch challenge.
Here is what I made.



And this is the sketch provided.


I used the stamp "Lacie with Ice Cream". It's been colored with Derwent Coloursoft Pencils and blended with baby oil.

My color combo was inspired by this week's challenge at Phindy's Place, which is brown, teal and green. Such beautiful colors!
The flowery paper and green paper are from lime twist, I don't remember unfortunately who the maker of the pretty printed paper is.

The sentiment is by Whimsy Stamps from the set "Friendship Notables 2", I also used "Whimsy's Notables 2 "shapeology die to cut it out.
It's a pretty simple card. I just used some twine and a button to embellish and did some machine sewing.

I would also love to enter it to Bronte and Bella's Challenge with the theme of anything goes using a Mo Manning image, and then since I borrowed the colors from Phindy's Place (colors teal, brown, moss/celery, white) I would like to enter it there as well.

Thank you so much for looking!
Enjoy the rest of you weekend!
