New stash

It's the last challenge of the month again at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 (how did that come around so quickly) so we can use any sketch and then there is a twist which this month is monochromatic. Having had a lovely spend at the Lili of the Valley shop yesterday it would have been rude not to have used something new and this is the result.

I used sketch number 3, I think it is one of my favourites but I flipped it so the bow is on  the right hand side.
This 'Skipping' stamp seems to have passed me by on previous trips over to Farsley and I found it difficult to resist when I saw it yesterday, I think it reminds me of my childhood, skipping in the street was a popular past-time foe my friend and I.
I have coloured the image with Copics and then used papers from the Shabby Shack pad, the sentiment is from the Art Pad and again coloured with Copics to match the image and papers.
Ribbon and brads are from my stash and the blue card is from American Crafts Spring collection.

Thank you for visiting and for any comments you are kind enough to leave

Oh Anne your card is so darn cute, I love this image and this pretty shade of blue that you've used. Yes those were the days when we skipped, played hop scotch and knuckle bones. Today is facebook, ipads ipods and television. LOL now I'm showing my age. This is a wonderful monochromatic card and thanks so much for joining us this week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.
