sweet sunday sketch challenge #22




Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use Mr. Linky down at the end of my post to enter your card. On Thursday at 2 PM (Mountain Time), I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog. So, as long as your card is linked in the Mr. Linky box by 2 PM Thursday, your card will be in the drawing. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC22 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

My sketch this week is a little sneak peek for you from the new Stampin' Up! catalog - page 54 to be exact. I really loved the unique look of this layout and thought it would be both fun and challenging. Perfect, no? Another little sneak peek for you, the set Wings of Friendship, which is a level 2 hostess set. I really love the main image and flourish in this set, very fun to work with!


Now it's your turn - have fun!
Karen
