Classy Card Ladies Sketch

Today is the 15th and that means it is another posting day for our group, the Crafty Card Ladies!   The team names are the Pearls and the Diamonds--very Classy names for us!   For our April Challenge, Laura Jean and Darlene are the hostesses. Darlene is a Pearl and Laura Jean is a Diamond, just like me!   And we are all team Classy Card Ladies!  

The theme for April that was picked is a Sketch Challenge.  In the 10 years the original members of the group have been together, there has never been a sketch challenge-can you believe that!  This is the sketch that Laura Jean asked the Diamonds to use--Tuesday Morning Sketch 592! Thanks Melissa of TMS for letting us use this sketch!

Laura Jean sent everyone a kit with a Tim Holtz Spring 2021 Flower.  She also include some coordinating sentiments and I used one on the inside of my card. Laura Jean also included some Basic Grey Origins patterned paper along with some fun ribbons and pretty embellishments. 

I colored the flower and stem image with my Copic Sketch Markers. I then cut strips of three of the four patterned papers and layered them over a strip of cardstock.  I used the 4th patterned paper as my background.  I added three of the enamel dots LJ sent for the final part of the sketch.  This was fun card to make!

Here is the inside of my card, with one of the sentiments, ribbon and a tag LJ included in the kit:

I hope all of the Classy Card Ladies enjoy my card this month. Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Diamonds as well the Pearls have created this month.  There are two members who do not have blogs: Suzy who is on the Diamond team and Debby who is a Pearl. You will be able to check out their creations in their SCS gallery, if you click on the link for their name.  All of the others should be found on my left sidebar.  I am sure you will enjoy all of the wonderful creations this month!  See you next month in May, when Carol and Shelly are the hostesses!
