Challenge With Love

It's Thursday - time for another Thematically Thursday post. This is the third Thursday of February, so that means it's a Challenge Me week. (If you're confused about what all of this means, look at the "page" at the top of my blog entitled "Watch My Blog" and it will make more sense.)

A couple of days ago I discovered a Challenge Blog that I had never seen before... so I decided to make it the Challenge I'd participate in today.

One of the interesting things about this particular challenge blog is one of their guidelines. They require participants to comment on at least 3 cards in the challenge gallery. I thought that was interesting.

Here's my card:

This is very different than my normal style. For starters... there is NO designer paper on this card. *gasp! I also did quite a bit of sponging on this card, which I rarely do. I like the look of sponging; I just usually never think to do it.

Here is the inside of my card:

This is my 56th card in the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge.

I think you had a great idea on using ink for the sketch instead of paper. It looks really good!
