Can't Pass Up A Sketch

Here is a last minute card for the sketch challenge at MFT using a stamp set by Gina K Designs.  I love this drawing but always need a sketch to get me to use it.  This sketch seemed a perfect one.
The image is colored with Copics and Prisma Pencils.
When I add a sentiment, I like to cut it out with a die but many times I don't have the shape or size I want.  SO here is a trick I do occasionally.   I use one of the rectangles in the Die-namic Stitched Rectangle Stax set, cut out the sentiment then realign the same die, making the cut narrower.  The stitch lines seem to line up and even if the die cuts extra stitch lines (as in this case), it isn't too noticeable. The circles are Die-namic Circle Stax
Background paper is from my stash.  The card base is textured.
