Grumpy Gertrude and Stella Says Sketch

Well, it's that time, again! Time for another Stella Says Sketch challenge! We have a fun sketch for you this time, too! I admit, I loved this one!  Be sure to head over to Catch The Bug to see our sketch and play along! You don't want to miss out on the fabulous prizes up for grabs from Bugaboo Stamps! So, hurry, come play with us in the new Stella Says Sketch challenge at Catch The Bug!

My card today uses the image and sentiment set, Grumpy Gertrude - PMS and GPS, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers.  I used a fun mix of teal, green, black and purple.  All papers are from my stash.  How do you like my new bling on the card?! I got it at Michael's on sale! Gotta love those bling sales! The black border is punched with a border punch by Fiskars.
