House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #29 - Sketch

I was happy to see that this week's House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge is a sketch. I think sketch challenges are my very favorite type of challenge.

I chose this cute Happy Hopper image for my card this week. I received it in a swap and think it's just adorable. I had to vary the upper right part of the sketch slightly. Because of the size of the image, the circle element shown in the sketch wasn't showing enough and didn't really do anything for the card. I replaced it with the flower embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Happy Hopper Puddle Fun (Stampabilities); sentiment (Hero Arts)
Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine)
Paper: Blue cardstock (unknown); DP (My Mind's Eye)
Embellishments: ribbon (unknown); brads (Making Memories); flowers (Prima)
Technique: Prismacolor Pencils blended with Turpenoid
