Time for Tea

Hi all!  It's the 1st of the month and you know what that means- a new sketch challenge over at Some Odd Girl :)  We've got this gorgeous sketch to work with:
sketch2 
 I love the sketches at SOG because they give you a lot of room for interpretation!  This time I went a little more true to the basic sketch because I tried my hand at a boys card- they are definitely my achiles heel in cards but I've heard practice makes perfect- or at least a little better- so I just keep trying every now and then :)  If you're a Wednesday Live Color Along fan from the Ustream show that Kristy does then you'll recognize Mad Hatter Kody as the image she did last week and it definitely stretched my Copic boundaries!  Those pants were a challenge, and about half way through I thought the image was destined for the trash bin, but I stuck with it and I think they turned out okay.  Have you ever tried to do patterns like that?  How'd it go for you?  Well, I sure do hope that you'll stop on by the Some Odd Girl blog to see all the other inspiration from the DT- they always knock my socks off!  And thanks as always for popping by to pay me a visit :)

I love the colors and swirls in the background, but what really jumps out at me is how wonderfully you've colored the stamp. I actually had to double check that the pants were colored - they almost look paper pieced! Well done!
