Shabby Stitched Thank You

Today's challenge on SCS was to use white gel pen. Wasn't too much of a challenge since I use it just about every day!! I returned to one of my favorite techniques of stamping on colored or patterned paper with the image and coloring it over. On the flowers you can see how the white gel pen just POPS! I was going to frame a sentiment but decided to use a little of the main image in the hodgepodge hardware instead and use the sentiment on a tag.
I colored the leaves with 3 shades of copic markers, then highlighted the pot with gel pen and shadowed it with W-5 Copic.

The card layout is part of Cindy Haffner's weekly sketch challenge in the My Favorite Things forum located HERE. I'm a huge fan of Cindy's work, so playing along with her sketch designs is always alot of fun!
