Let's talk about MY card

The rebel came out in me a TEENY bit this week, Perhaps it was the excitement of playing around with this image SG 165 "Friends and Wine"!! Just the talk of Vino brings out the Rebel in me. I stamped my image then water colored using a combination of SU ink & a purple water color pencil. I have no clue who the DP kit or my little Grape Vine embellishments are manufactured by. They were a gift. How about that homemade "TRELLIS"?? I used the Martha Stewart Picket Fence edge punch. I punched the fence on both sides of my card stock but made sure not to have it lined up symetrically. I layered a little strip of leaf ribbon behind the plastic grapes. Now I can totally see the SKETCH, Can YOU?? (monochromatic = using colors within one color family (your choice), however, you may use ONE NEUTRAL) I chose Plums with Vanilla............SHHHHHH and a splash of green

let's see your take on this Sketch
WAIT click on the names of the other "Ladies with Attitude" to see what they have " TWISTED " up for you
