Market Street Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  And not just any Wednesday, but the third Wednesday, which means it's Market Street Sketch Challenge Day!  Please come play with us on the Market Street blog!
Here's the sketch:

and here's my card:
Like everyone else in the entire world, I love Market Street's Gone Campin set, so I stamped the camper and colored it in using copics and prismacolor pencils, using the tiny heart stamps from the same set in the doorway.  The background paper is, appropriately, from October Afternoon Campfire paper pad.  For the orange strip, I cut a rectangle from a post-it to use as a mask, then stamped Bit of Burlap background stamp.  The sentiment is from the jam-packed Simple Joys sentiment set (which is definitely unlike any other sentiment set I've seen before).  I hope you can see the words on the heart which say, "if this van's a-rockin', don't come a-knockin."  I typed the phrase and copied it repeatedly in MS Word, printed it out, then cut out the heart.

And make sure you don't come a-knockin', because the van really is a-rockin!
I used the tilt card tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers to make the van rock back and forth because, well, it just had to be done.

I hope you all are having a rocking week (wink, wink) and I can't wait to see your sketch creations!

LOL, this is so cute, Meg! First of all, I LOVE that star paper. I wonder where I recognize it from! :P Those stars really look like they're glowing in the dark. I love the burlap background with the masked sentiment and the words on the heart are hilarious! I love the little caravan. ;)
