Sweet N Sassy Monday DT challenge- It's a sketch!!

I am back as promised with my Monday SNSS sample card for you. I like to schedule my post for just past midnight but sometimes it just does not work out that way. Anyway, I am pretty happy with how my sample came out. Take a peek at the sketch and my card:

What a treat this week with double the sketches and double the fun LOL! Korin gave us a great sketch to work with. I along with many other people love sketch challenges because it gives you a plan for your card and takes some of the guess work out of what to do. For this card I stamped my images from the SNSS Warm Up set on my paper temptress sparkle white paper. I colored them with my copics and they worked beautifully on it! Now, I will tell you that because this is a heavier weight cardstock it does take more ink from the markers. I actually used this paper because I had some scraps left over from my mojo card and wanted to see how it worked with the copics. Anyway, I cut the images and popped them up with pop dots and the scalloped circle is popped up higher than the other two. I distressed most of the edges with my scissors and sewed my dp layer onto my brown matte. The finished card measures 5 1/4" square. The bayou dp square measures 5" square and my circle dp is 4" in diameter. I thought that giving the measurements may help you because I know that it is hard to know how big a card is just from a picture on your screen.
