inky paws challenge - sketch

**this is my 2nd post of the day! for the lawnscaping fb inspiration team blog hop - click here! or scroll down**

the friday fun keeps coming!
today starts a brand new inky paws challenge, over on the newton's nook blog
this time, it's a sketch!! AND I LOVE IT!!

see? it's an amazing sketch! there's really so much you can do with it! :)

for my card, i chose to work with a christmas set, but turned it into a birthday card! :) ha!

i LOVE that whale from sea-son's greetings! i copic colored him, and then popped him up for dimension over some really FUN yellow and blue patterned paper!

the clouds (my FAVORITE!) are from the NEW spring showers stamp set! swoon! aren't they the best shape ever? i shaded half of the clouds with my lightest grey and then added just a hint of wink of stella pen! it's really cool and pretty in real life! 

the sentiment came together by masking part of the sentiment from the sea-son's greetings set with the happy birthday from newton's birthday bash! fun fun fun!

so what do you think? are you ready to try your hand at this sketch? i can't wait to see! 
you could win newton's stamps!!!
