Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #70

I'm baaaacckk!!! We got home Monday evening, but tonight was the first chance I had to get into my craft room. I missed it. A LOT.

I have been checking out the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge for awhile now, but this is the first time I've ever tried the challenge. What I ended up with was nothing like the idea I started with in my head. I was originally going to use a House Mouse images, but I decided that this cute flamingo was the perfect image for the sketch. I have no clue who makes this stamp. It was given to me by my dear friend Susan. So Susan if you are reading this, tell me who makes this stamp - please. :) By the way, you should check out Susan's blog sometime. She is super creative and does some beautiful work.

I colored the flamingo with Prisma colored pencil blended with gamsol. The background is the Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy folder run through my Big Kick. I also used my Big Kick to cut the scallop circle (Spellbinders Nestabilities) and the little ribbon slide (Cuttlebug). The quote stamp and all cardstock is Club Scrap. The ribbon is from my stash.
