Lunchtime Sketch Challenge ... on Thursday this week!

Well, I appear to be improving on my timing a little bit. I once again participated in Mary Jo's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge -- again with a card for my brother-in-law's birthday ... since I decided that last week's card was more fitting for my dad's retirement coming up in June!

Here's this week's sketch:

Here's my take on the sketch. I'm not a big purple fan, but I loved how the purple seemed to go with the image -- masculine, but not overdone -- a clean and simple card.

I used the Forever Young stamp set with the Pocketful of Posies stamp set since my image was so beautifully stamped on Whisper White c/s. Had I stamped it on Vanilla, I probably would have chosen the Timeless Portrait DSP that matches the stamp set, but alas...

Here's a closer view:

While looking for something to add to the image, I decided to pop up the outside of the clock. Bear with me ... I had only stamped one image on Whisper White, and two on Vanilla c/s (I borrowed the stamp set while down on the Cape with my demonstrator buddies last w/e).

Here's another view of the bottom of the card -- I used the Adorning Accents embossing folder, but the card still needed something. I decided to color 2 of our pearls with a purple sharpie marker -- not a perfect match, but it worked nevertheless.

Thanks for joining me today! Come back tomorrow when I hopefully have another project to share for next week's Technique class!
