Though We Are Far Apart...

Do you know what day it is?
Hump Day!

On Monday I decided to get out some CTMH watercolors and try my hand at creating a background on my card for a sketch challenge. 

I'm not very adventurous when it comes to card making. I tend to have a comfort zone that I stay in and enjoy, but I was feeling adventurous and this is what happened.

Close To My Heart watercolors

The sentiment banner overlapped the top
of one of the houses, so I used one of my Micron markers
to draw on the part it overlapped.
(I told you I was feeling adventurous.)
