A Black Tie Sketch

This is Black Tie week at Dynamic Duos with the dessert option to use 'brads'. I combined these colors on a great sketch from Retro Sketches.


The stamp is from HA, Eiffel Tower die cut MFT, dp Basic Grey and ribbon from Michaels. The flower and large brad in the center are from my stash. Copic markers were used to color the flesh and the handbag, glitter was applied to the Eiffel Tower.

This is the Dynamic Duo color palette for the week:


Here is the lovely sketch from Retro Sketches:



Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
