Just Add Ink Challenge #21 - A Sketch Challenge

I've decided that I'm really not suited to sketch challenges!  I find them really frustrating - I'm much better with colour and theme challenges.  That is, I cope better!  Even though I was frustrated by this sketch, I'm quite happy with the result.  Actually, that's happened quite a bit with the challenges that have frustrated me the most!  Perhaps the key to creativity for me is frustration...? 

Anyway, after seeing the beautiful cards Nicole and Sarah came up with for JAI using Embrace Life, I crumbled and bought it.  So of course I had to use it straight away!!

And here's the sketch for the challenge.  Hope to see your recreation over at Just Add Ink!

Stamp sets - Embrace Life
Cardstock - Watercolour paper, Ruby Red, Basic Black, Confetti White
Inks - Black Stazon, Blush Blossom, Cameo Coral, Versamark
