Dottie's World Challenge-Sketch Challenge

Hello and Happy Sunday. :o)
This week I am hosting the Dottie's World Challenge, and I decided to do a sketch. :o)
Here is the sketch:

I was so excited when I finally figured out how to make a sketch on my mac.
It's a super easy sketch-a nice way to start the year!
I made this card for my mom and dad for their 42nd wedding anniversary on the 27th of the month....{whoops.... close your eyes mom! ...yup my mommy subscribes to my blog. :o)}
I used Dottie and Hubby from the Love and Marriage collection-you can get it HERE.
My dad wears glasses so I free handed a pair with my copic multiliner pen. An essential tool when working with copics. You can't use a normal marker when working with copics-you could get bleeding and you can't use a copic marker because it will blend in with your image. You need a marker that is water & copic proof. {when adding liner details to your images}

I colored in the image with my copics.
The paper is BoBunny-Flutter Butter and so are the buttons
The paper flowers are Bazzill
The crochet flowers and ribbon are CTMH
The sentiment is Kraftin' Kimmie's stamped in CTMH-cocoa
I also did a bit of distressing to help blend all the different patterned papers together-I used a dauber and desert sand CTMH ink.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will join us over at Dottie's World for this week's challenge. :o)
