Repeat Impressions WHAT IF? Wednesday Sketch

Time for another Repeat Impressions WHAT IF? Wednesday challenge.   The RI Rock Stars are given a sketch and each create a card using it.  Then, YOU create your card using the sketch, upload it, and link it to the Repeat Impressions blog.  You can find the sketch, the other creations, and everything else you need to know on the RI blog, The House That Stamps Built.
You can also visit each of the other designers' blogs following these links:
Ayana ~ Dana ~ Darsie ~ Harriet ~Joy ~ Julie ~ Maki ~ Michele ~ Robin

My card uses the stamp 1706-I, Wild Violets and you can find it on this page.  Just scroll down a bit.  I colored the image with markers, cut it with a square Nestability, and, while it was still in the die, sponged it with ink.  I matted it with Stampin' Up! Almost Amethyst cardstock and mounted it on Dimensionals.  I also used the amethyst for the smaller squares and embossed them with a Cuttlebug folder.  I added the black strips to complete the sketch.

Won't you join us?  One random winner for the month will be chosen to win a $25 gift certificate!  Also - a reminder that you have nearly a week to enter the CASE Makiko challenge for a chance to win a full sheet of unmounted rubber.  You can find all those details in this post.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
