Bloggers Challenge Sketch and The Color of Money!

Happy Friday to all!  Tomorrow we go front door shopping.  Today the exact window measurements will be done at 3:00 PM and here I am playing!  Such is life!  Plenty of time to do what I need to do! 

Lisa's Bloggers Challenge this week is a sketch, which I just love sketches.  So here is my take on sketch. Since I love to combine challenges and it is not out of laziness, I went with the "Color of Money."  Gingersnap Creations GC108 is having us show our money colors! 

The sentiment stamp used is from Unity Stamps and the designer papers are Basic Grey.  I did a cuttlebug highlight technique from the Technique Junkies.  The butterflies where punched from leftovers. 

Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for stopping by!
