Rubber Romance meets SCS sketch challenge

It's been so quiet here today that Finn actually took two naps. He never does that when his brothers are home! They are having a great time with Grandma and Grandpa. They've already been to McDonald's and ToysRUs. Can you say spoiled?! I'm glad they are having such a great time!

This cute image from Rubber Romance is one of their ATC sided images. I love the big images, too, but these ATC sized images are often perfect for sketches. And they are fast to color. Her name is April, isn't she pretty? She reminds me of my dear friend Melissa. She'll probably be the one to receive this card for her birthday.

The background paper reminds me of olives! In her martini, there is a green swarovski crystal olive. If you click on the photo you can see it! Her lipstick and green eye shadow are shimmery, thanks to copic spica pens. I used Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge SC243 for this card.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great Thursday!

Love it and the soft colors...I haven't done ribbon like that in awhile, will have to remember that! I can't wait until my granddaughter is just a little older so we can do those things. :)
