Harry Needs a Hand - Simon Says Challenge

I finally had time to make a card for this week's Simon Says Challenge. The image I used is a freebie that I downloaded from Mo's Digital Pencil called Harry Needs a Hand. I just love Mo's illustrations. Even if you think you don't like digis, you should check out her blog and her Etsy shop. She is quite talented - and a very nice person too. :)

The challenge for Simon Says Challenge this week is a sketch, which I have posted below. I just realized that I have my 2nd layer of paper turned the wrong way - oopsie! LOL! Oh well. I really like this sketch. It's simple, but still interesting and very versatile. I'm going to be filing it away for future use.

Stamps: Harry Needs a Hand (Mo's Digital Pencil); Sentiment (Martha Stewart)
Paper: Green and red cardstock (unknown); DP - Christmas Stack (DCWV)
Embellishments: Ribbon, metal frame, buttons, twine
Technique: Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits
Finished card size: 6" square

Cute card! I love this sketch and I so wanted to participate this time but just couldn't find the time unless I gave up sleep! I have printed the sketch though and will use it later. Too many great challenges and not enough time...."sigh"
