Here is this weeks Sketch

In honor of our Anniversary Party my design card this week has a musical theme. I used a cute Penny Black Stamp that I have had for a long time.
I embossed the image onto watercolor paper and pulled out my watercolors for these cute little mice. My flowers are by Prima with touches of pearls in the center. What a wonderful sketch this week.
These are my contribution to the prizes for our Anniversary party! These yummy flowers are by Prima and will be a lovely addition to someone's projects!
Good Luck!
