So, who out there HASN'T been to Mercy Kerin's blog? I LOVE it, and I've been wanting to play in one of her sketch challenges for a while now. Well, I finally got around to it, and couldn't help myself from CASE'ingone of her cards that she made for her own sketch. I changed the colors, the LO a tiny bit (but kept it in line with the sketch) and some of the sizes of the layers, but basically you will be able to obviously see where I got my inspiration ;) I loved her use of brads on the card, but scaled them down a bit - I left off the piercing, and changed some other minor details, but used the same Eastern Blooms stamp set image (I LOVE this set!!) and this is what I came up with. Check out her card HERE, and be sure to browse around her lovely blog - she even has a new sketch challenge up for today!!!
