Come play with me!

I took a poll a while back to see if anyone was interested in me posting a weekly sketch. So, without further ado - here it first official sketch challenge! I'd love for you all to play along with me. If you do, make sure to put a link to your creation in the comments section of this post so I can check it out! If you upload it to SCS, be sure to title it MS001 so I can search for it.

Here's my take on the sketch. I thought it was the perfect way to use up some of those skinny strips of scrap paper that we all have.

I used the chocolate covered strawberries from the retired set called "Oh So Sweet" and cut them out so I could cluster them together. The card base is SU's Close To Cocoa, and the sentiment is from Amuse and goes perfectly with this stamp set. The polka dots on the top of the card were made with a small background stamp by Savvy Stamps.

This gave me the perfect opportunity to use my new Sakura Glaze Pens - oh my did I ever live without these things?! It's difficult to show in a photograph, but the pens give your image a similar effect to heat embossing. I used the yellow pen on the seeds and the clear pen to go over the chocolate.

I hope some of you gals join me in my sketch challenge! I'd LOVE to see what you all come up with!!!
