You Fill My Day With Sunshine - Freshly Made Sketches

This week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches has been calling to me all week. 
 I just love the edginess of this sketch.  And my March Simon Says Stamp Card Kit had arrived, so it was time to break the seal and get busy.  Here is my design . . .

In addition to my new card kit, I had some new ink that I wanted to try out from Avery Elle.  It's a pigment ink, which is something I've not used in a long time.  My complaint has always been that pigment inks take forever to dry.  However, that said, in the last several months, I've rediscovered my heat gun.  In doing so, I am embossing everything under the sun.  So in an effort to dry my pigment ink, I'm just clear embossing while it's still wet.  So the pigment inks are making a revival in my card making. 

I would say that this sketch is a keeper . . . and the contents of my March kit will keep me busy this month.
