Marty's Sunday Sketch Challenge

Week 11 of the sketch challenge was a joy to do because it has the clean graphic lines I like for a card.  Here is Marty's sketch:

And here is my interpretation (pretty straightforward):



The paper, punch, ribbon, and white pearls are all Stampin' Up.  The metal flowers are Making Memories, and the one blue pearl is just something from my stash...origin, unknown.  I love black, white and gray, but think adding one little pop of an unexpected color makes it more interesting.
The rest of the Gotham City Stampers design team made great cards.  Hop on over to Heidi's blog to see what they did.

Whew! Glad to have you back! I was thinking of you when I watched the weather...yuk. You just never know! Plus I was going into withdrawal not seeing a post on your blog... lol... seriously, I checked once and a while, just to see if by chance.....nope. Pathetic, I know. Nice card, love the "unexpected" piece of color, it does really make it pop!
