Here is my creation for today's Challenge Sketch: (see sketch below)

I stamped "Nature's Dance Tree Bird" by Penny Black using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White cardstock. My designer papers are glittery and velvet cardstocks by Doodlebug and Paper Studio. My rhinestone embellishments are by Recollections. The sentiment stamp is by Inque Boutique. Card size: 5 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches
