Charlie Horse

A little bright, just the way I like it!  This week, Sweet Sketch Wednesday is being sponsored by Clearly Digi Stamps and I thought it would be a great opportunity to break out a favorite of mine.  This kit is called Charlie Daisy and like many of CDS's kits it includes the papers, a huge selection of both outline (B&W) and pre-colored images, and sentiments all for the price of a typical digi.  

I made the flower border embellishment myself.  Do you know you can turn just about any cut file in Silhouette Studio into a Print and Cut?  I just opened the cut file and added color to each of the pieces, added a solid black line and a white offset and just set it to cut the outline only.  I love using this technique with digital papers because you get a perfect matching element using the color picker tool.

Anyway, here's the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday # 213:

The colors were inspired by Catch the Bug's Color Challenge (well actually I chose Charlie Daisy based on this scheme):
