Atlantic Hearts Sketch #33--Lookin' Good!

 Good morning, crafty friends!
Don't you just love a sketch, when you need a card in a hurry? 
This new one from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge saved my bacon.
I needed a quick birthday card for my dapper brother-in-law.
Some retired CTMH paper, a border punch & a couple of dies, the great Puns of Praise stamp set, and I was all set.
Here's another view:
I love colouring outline stamps with alcohol markers! So easy to achieve shading and dimension. I added Liquid Glass to the lens of the magnifying glass to make it look glassy.
I used the new M-size stamp Heartfelt Birthday Wish on the inside and shaded it to match the magnifying glass.

Head on over to Atlantic Hearts to grab the sketch.
Design team interpretations are posted on Wednesday; you have until midnight Sunday to link up your take on this week's sketch. Can't wait to see how you use it!
Happy crafting,
Caroline
