I have been a member of Splitcoast Stampers for at least 6 or 7 years.  They have a massive database of card samples.  They also have different challenges every day.  Participating in the challenges stretches me as a stamper.  This is my contribution for SC414 the sketch challenge this week.

This was this week's challenge.

This was my card.
