The View

The one out my back door this morning, anyway. I couldn't quite capture the fog.

And a card for the Paper Pretties challenge, with glitter since I missed posting for last week's challenge. I used my new "You're Maaaarvelous Sophia" and My Mind's Eye Home patterned paper. It's a sketch challenge this time around, and I'm not one for sketches. I always end up with way too much going on for my taste--this is a prime example, in fact. The paper is already glittered, so I added a little (har har har) more to my main image and sentiment. It's Stickles loose glitter, and it is divine and oh so fine. I don't even mind cleaning up the glitter mess with this stuff.

card stock: PTI
patterned paper: My Mind's Eye Home 6x6
ink: memento tuxedo black, bic & prismacolor markers
