I decided to combine challenges on this sketch challenge creatiion.

I used a beautiful sneek peak of a NEW RELEASE- "Quiet Waters" from Our Daily Bread Designs to be released on June 1! Isn't it a great image! It has many awesome verses to go with it too that I will showcase in the future. The image is watercolored.
