Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 113 w/A Spoon Full of Sugar's Challenge 116 - lets get sketchy Sketch!

So I have been away for awhile and it has been quit some time since I have actually posted something. I decided to take a break from crafting and Etsy for about a month because I was becoming a little burned out. But now I'm back and I oh so missed my delicious papers and beads! I went straight into my craft room and started out with some fun card challenges!

For this card I used the theme"On The Beach" from the Penny Black Saturday Challenge and the sketch from A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge!

I absolutely love using Penny Black stamps, they are so adorable and many are beautifully detailed! This particular beachy stamp was a delightful surprising find...I found it at a used store last year for only $2 and it was NEW never used!! I just love when I can find crafty bargains!

Here is the Sketch Challenge #29 from A Spoon Full of Sugar...

Here are some up close pics of the card...

And of course here is the inside...I keep telling myself I'm not going to do this
