Well the kids are back in school and that makes morning here just as hectic as ever - in a good way of course! My son is a high school senior now and every school day is meaningful and to be cherished. I know this year will go by fast for him and me :(  My daughter is off to a good start as a sophomore too - gobs of homework on the first day but she's handled it just fine.

Now on to today's card for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week. We're featuring Broken Box Designs images and have some great samples to inspire you at SSW.

Sally created the sketch for this week's challenge and it goes together quickly and looks terrific. I hope you give it a try and join us in the challenge fun this week.

Broken Box Designs is our sponsor this week and Wendy, the owner and illustrator, has such a wonderful selection of images to choose from. We loved creating with her digi stamps this week. The Grand Prize winner of the challenge will receive a $5 gift certificate from Broken Box. Thanks Wendy for your sponsorship of our challenge!

I collect teacups and this Teacup image from Broken Box caught my eye. I decided for a vintage look with my card this week using Copic markers to color the image, distress inks and some vintage looking papers from MME. I added a bit of sparkle with a glitter pen which is a bit difficult to photograph well.

For more inspiration using the sketch this week, stop on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and take a look at the design team samples using Broken Box images. There's a whole selection of wonderful card that will entice you to join us this week in the challenge.  Hope to see your card in the mix this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
