Mercy's Sketch #86

Hello! It seems like it's been so long since I've made a card or even posted, but it's only been a couple days, lol! I'm attending a transition/separation class this week as my separation from the military is looming ever closer! We've been writing our resume's, practicing interviews, talking benefits, and a bunch of other SUPER stressful things this week so my stamping mojo is NOT with me lately! I did however do some coloring today. I got my new TGF stamps in the mail and just wanted to kind of zone out and enjoy some coloring time, lol!
I used Mercy's Tuesday sketch for this week, a really fun one!
Right? FUN! 
Here's my card using the fabulous FRIDAY!

Okay, be gentle, remember I told you my mojo is NOT HERE with me, lol! I am quite pleased with the coloring part, but the embellishing of this card was beyond me, ha! It's all good though, I really wanted to highlight this image anyway, isn't she FAB?

I sponged around her with my Ranger Tea Dye distress ink and Espresso (by Momento) inks. 
I also did a little highlighting of the image with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol!

Okay, off to work on my 30 second commercial for class tomorrow *please say a prayer for me, I do hate to brag on myself, lol!*

Ta for now!
