Ink it Pink Sketch Challenge Monday

HI all!  I've been super crazy busy with card orders and I am just about done with those and my submissions to one of my favorite magazines. 
I decided it was about time I get back to my roots of what really got me started on cards... challenges!  My first ever challenge was with Kristal Andrew's Getting Cricky with K. Andrew and gosh, it's been at least three years ago now.  I really need to enter another one.... hmmmm.... That will be my project tomorrow.

Today I was browsing my recent favorite challenges and I came back to visit Pink by Designs Ink it Pink Challenge.  I had 7 hours to complete, write my blog and submit prior to the deadline... EEEK! 

This week their challenge was a Sketch:

I had a lot of fun with this card and had a to do a re-do so that cut into my deadline but this is my final product.

The base of my card is 6x5, which is out of my norm of 4.25x5.5.  It just goes to show my Texan side of me coming out as... Bigger is Better! 

I used the following supplies:

Designer Paper: Close to my Heart : Perfect Day

Ink: Stampin Up : Chocolate Chip
       distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Antique Linen

RicRac: American Crafts

Flock: Studio G

WaterPencils: Stampin Up

Finally the stars of the card

Image and Sentiment: Pink by Design's Beary Merry Christmas

Now that I' ve got this done, I've got less than 3 hours until deadline, talk about cutting it close!  I can't wait to get back to the mainland so that I can keep better tabs on the time differences.
