ISS Sketch Challenge - SC10

I can't believe it is already June!  Pretty soon the kids will be all done with school and things will definitely be different around here ~ but I am excited because I love having them home!  We have been having fantastic weather lately ~ sunny and warm ~ and it is definitely a welcome change!   Today we have our monthly sketch challenge at InStyle Stamps and this is the sketch we were given: 

And here is my version of it: 

For my card today I used Tiffany.  Can you believe I didn't use any designer papers on this one?  Well I know that I had the perfect paper that I wanted to use for this, but cannot find it anywhere (I am thinking that one of my kids liked it and decided to use it), so I went a different route and embossed some textured cardstock (which I then sanded) and used that in place of designer paper.  I think I will need to pick up some more white core paper ~ I had always used SU cardstock, but since the color goes through, you can't sand it and get this effect. 

Please stop by and visit the rest of the Design Team to see how they interpreted this sketch (the links are on the left side of my blog).   We'd love to have you join in our challenge this month so head on over to the  InStyle Stamps blog for further details.
