My BLOG-Versary Giveaway post is HERE-ends 7/17

 Thanks for joining me for the July Firecracker Designs by Pamela Blog Hop.  This month, we were challenged to this sketch:
FCD_sketch_021
 I cannot sketch anything….but, at FCD we do have a DT member that can sketch and she has introduced a new line of Digital Stamps- HERE is a link to the new digi’s by Boni Boutelle. (Pamela has added a new search capability- search by artist).   One of the images-Ken- is available as a freebie HERE –grab him quick- there will be a new digi this weekend and he will be moved into the store!
 OK, for my sketch card, I used Mr $$$ (Lord Money Man) as I can identify- with two kids in college, I sing the song about $$$ not growing on trees quite a bit!  LOL

 I colored the image with Copics E000 and E00, YG17 and SU markers for the hat. I used Wild Wasabi ink as an accent. For the layer behind the main image, I punched out tabs with the SU punch and cut them in 1/2, then layered them around the image. I decided for my accent piece to make a flower with the left over money background and the SU scallop punch. (I did not have any good DSP to use, so I Googled Money Background and printed one out to use).
