Designed 2 Delight Skater Boy


I used Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge #118 for my card layout today, I think it was from 2007.  I have a couple of old sketch books I found recently that have some great stuff in them!

My card is for the Designed 2 Delight progressive challenge that they have each week, this cute image was in my e mail last Friday morning.  To find out more about the challenge click on the link under challenges at the end of my blog post.

I colored the cute skater boy with Copic markers B99, B97, B95, B93, B91, YR04, YR07, YR09, YR31, E34, E35, G07, C0, R20, E000, E00, E11, E53, T5, T3, T2, T1.  The other products I used are the Cuttlebug Diamond plate embossing folder, large silver eyelets, Orange Grossgrain ribbon and the sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Signature Greetings stamp set.  The cardstock colors I used are Stampin' Up! Only Orange & Basic Grey, Papertrey Ink Enchanted Evening and Neenah Solar White.

Great card Jan! Your coloring is awesome as usual and I really like the angled piece in the background. Looks like your old notebooks are chock full of inspiration.

Jan, I would never have been brave enough to attempt these colors, but they really, really work. I have been enjoying also the pictures of Maxine - she is just an adorable fur-person. Our Charlie is 7 months now and he is such an adventure. I posted a picture earlier this week of a card he took from my desk! I am sure Maxine has better manners! Blessings.
