Teacup - It is time for another sketch challenge at Sunday Sketch and Stamp. We are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish.

Here is our sketch. It is a perfect sketch for a double breasted card, so that is what I did. The lighter blue/green paper pulls out.

My flourish is SB. the ribbon roses are SU and I used my Bow Easy to tie the cream and pinkish/red bows. I used one of my Stick Pins from a Stick Pin swap that I participated in. I also used some ivory  lace.

My designer papers are MME Market Street. I am very fond of this paper pad and used almost half of it already. The papers were inked with Tea Dye distress ink.

The pull out piece was punched with a MS punch.

My image is one from our sponsor, Robyn's Fetish. I love this image. After coloring it with Copics, I used a rubber stamp that has cracked lines and stamped using Tea Dye distress inks to add the tiny cracks in the porcelain.

Cute Card Thursday #263 Borrowed-I borrowed a technique that I learned in a class, to use an ink pad to add some color to the ribbon flowers. You just rub the ink pad across the flowers.
