AWOL and Sketch Saturday

Hi everyone, sorry I have been AWOL for a couple of weeks I got the unexpected opportunity to travel and couldn't pass up such a great experience. Normally when I know I am going to be away I schedule at least a couple of posts but there just wasn't time. I did visit you all though leaving comments with the hotel intermittent internet connection proved problematic and frustrating lol.

I took a few images and my neutral grey copics and decided to try the monochromatic look, really enjoyed this and have used one of these images on my card below. I added a pop of raspberry to the image to match the already printed papers in my snippet draw.

I have really enjoyed the sketch saturday challenges and have been trying to take part every week, sketches have always been my nemesis but I am slowing starting to enjoy them.

Image: "Miss Anya" The greeting Farm
Papers: Pink Petticoat in Silver Cloud and Raspberry Collis
Sentiment: "Signature Butterfly" Papertrey Ink

Challenges: Sketch Saturday

Super card Amanda - and like you I find sketches my least fave but they do provide inspiration. Great snippets card and I love the papers you used.
