Card Sketch #88 - some blog candy too!

Hello, and happy Labor Day!

Here is card sketch #88 - measuring the normal A2 size.




The challenge for you on this sketch is to NOT use any designer paper, but to create your own!
The stripes are done using a stamp from the set Linear Sentiments from The Angel Company. I used a Le Plume II marker in dusty rose to color the stamp, huffed and carefully lined it up. The same marker is used on the ribbon stamp (also from TAC).
The flowers in the main panel are colored with the same marker, but I did the vase in prisma color pencils and blended it OMS. I added a dot of black glaze gel pen to the centers of the flowers.
Since I just turned over 20,000 hits on my blog and celebrated my birthday, I thought I'd do a little drawing for some blog candy! But - there's a catch! You have to complete the above card sketch, link back to me and leave me a comment here that you did the sketch. I will draw a random winner on Friday, September 12th. Goodies to include some TAC stamps, miscellaneous candy and some odds and ends!
Have a great week!






Supplies:
White and black card stock
Pink card stock from DCWV
Dusty Rose & leaf green Marvy LePlume II markers
Palette Noir ink
Black glaze gel pen
TAC stamps - linear sentiments, everyday events, ribbon borders and ordinary greetings.

I really liked this card and the sketch on your site. I decided to give it a try yesterday. Imagine my surprise when I received it in the mail today as an angeltag!!! You can see mine on my blog papercraftinginparadise.blogspot.com and I'm going to try to upload it to paper cuts in paper wings.
