sweet sunday sketch challenge #26


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 Saturday at 10 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 10 PM Saturday, 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 SSSC26 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

Is it just me, or does this sketch look a wee bit like an old TV? I just can't get it out of my head! I should have made a card that looked like Tivo, haha! I haven't stamped in a little while and I needed a jump start to my mojo - so I picked my new favorite color combo {garden green, certainly celery, and regal rose} and one of my favorite stamp sets {Cheep Talk} and went to it.

Now it is your turn - have fun!
Karen


recipe -
stamps: cheep talk
ink: garden green, certainly celery, regal rose
paper: garden green, regal rose, very vanilla cardstock, banbury dsp {retired}
accessories: certainly celery 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, 5/16" neutrals brads, stampin' dimensionals

Karen,

Thanks for the great sketch. I started my card before I saw the sketch and I couldn't believe how easy it was to adapt and make it work for this sketch.

My card is here:

Sorry- saw I had part of your link still copied as mine when I entered into Mr. Linky and it wasn't right the first time. If you could delete the first one I did (#45) that would be great.

This is the first challenge I have done. I hope I am using this posting process correctly. Thanks for the inspirational idea.
