PWC106: Another great Sketch from Grandma!

Did you all know that Frances just became a grandma?? Who'da thunk she was old enough to be a grandma?? Certainly not ME!! She looks WAY too young for that! Since it's the first Wednesday of the month, we've got another great sketch challenge from her this week over at Paper Pretties, and our featured sets this week are Summer Fun and Ahoy Matey (so they are both 40% off this week!!) making it pretty easy to decide on Ahoy Matey to celebrate Frances' ADORABLE new grandson! (and if you followed that run on sentence you get an A+ for the day!) As usual, if you didn't arrive here from Julie's blog, head on back so you don't miss any Prettiness today!
I used a bunch of different (all retired) SU! dsp for my layers, and I cut out my image with nesties and water colored it using SU! ink pads and my aquapainter. Hadn't done that in a while - it was fun! And this image just screams for water coloring, don't you agree???
I added the sentiment (using some punches) some satin ribbon, and some little buttons to finish the card off. I know the sketch didn't call for them, but even I can embellish a sketch SOMETIMES! ;-) And isn't that little uss baby on there adorable? It's a separate stamp so you don't HAVE to use it, but I couldn't resist!
Now keep on hoppin' to the uber talented Jackie and see what she's cooked up for us today!
