Sketch Challenge, it's been a while.

I used to do the sketch challenges almost religiously every Tuesday night (right when they'd be posted), but I just don't have the time anymore to do that. So sometimes I don't even check the sketch challenge until late Wednesday (gasp!). Anyway, I particularly liked this week's sketch, so here's my take on it. I knew I wanted to use my gelatins set "Bloom". I had it all set to go, but it just seemed to bare. So I pulled out an older background, stamped over top of my bloom background. Then to jazz that up even more, I coloured in the little flowers with the white gel pen.

This may seem cheesy, but half the reason I wanted to make a card tonight was because I got this nice new lamp from Costco. It's got a "sunlight bulb", so I figured no more running outside to take pictures (which is nice, since it's been particularly wet these past days). I am pleased with the results! So this picture has no editing. Usually I have to do a bit of noise reduction and the occasional cool filter in Elements.
