Marimekko Moonbeams...

The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in. -Morrie Schwartz

This week's Inspiration Challenge on SCS was our choice of 3 Marimekko umbrellas...I have mentioned Marimekko before, they are may FAVORITE textile company in the world...amazing designs and colors! I want my whole house to be Marimekko!!

As soon as I saw this umbrella I thought of one of the papers in the new Offbeat pack by Basic Grey. I combined this challenge with Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #54...

I Really wanted to use this image, because I just got it a few days ago...so I had to squish the sketch a little to get it all to fit. Speaking of new Elzybells....have you Seen the new Christmas stuff???? Run! Go Look Quick!

Stardust and Moonbeams (Elzybells)
Offbeat (Basic Grey,) Blush Blossom, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Copic Caios
