CBCC #22 - sketch challenge

Today's CBCC Challenge is a sketch challenge. When I saw the little circles at the bottom, I really had to think about what to put there. I finally decided to use my Spellbinders Petite Rose Border die cut set. I cut out 3 of the little rose circles and embossed them with the tan mat. To color the roses, I left the cardstock inside the die after embossing. It makes a perfect stencil for coloring. Here, I used my Stampin Up chalks for a nice soft touch of color.

Come play along with us. I'd love to see what you create with this sketch. :-)
