OCC Sketch Challenge

Good Morning Everyone!

I didn't get a chance to do the OCC sketch challenge over the weekend, so I thought I would do it this morning. I don't have an oval cutter, so I rounded the corners of my main image instead. As soon as I saw the vertical strip in the middle of the sketch, I knew that I wanted to use my Fruit Stand set. I haven't used it in a while, which is surprising because I really like this set. I wish that SU would have kept it around for a bit longer. I stamped the grapes in Basic Brown ink and then used inks, crayons, blender pens and aqua painters to color it in. I also used the retired "Fine Lace" background stamp on my larger Rose Red piece. For the ribbon at the bottom, I didn't have any Rose Red ribbon, so I substituted the Double Stitched Pomegranate Ribbon instead. All in all a very simple card; but still I think it will brighten somebody's day when I send it out!
I didn't see the Mojo Monday sketch until just a little while ago and now it's time to finish cleaning up and then go get T from school and then off to the park. I'm working on Easter Cards and some scrapbook layouts right now, also. So, basically what I'm saying is that Mojo Monday is going to have to be a Mojo Tuesday for me this week.
Have a great day everyone. If you get a chance check out the other OCC sketch entries.
