sweet sunday sketch challenge #40



Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use Simply Linked down at the end of my post to enter your card. On Thursday 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 Simply Linked box by 10 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 SSSC40 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I FINALLY got For All You Do a little while ago and I haven't had a chance to ink it up until I made this card. And something completely shocking happened - I actually made this card, from start to finish, without starting over and redoing anything. Can you believe it? I can't - that never happens, believe me. I stamped the flowers in Regal Rose, Garden Green, and Certainly Celery ink and then cut them out by hand. You know how I am with my bling, so I added some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the flower centers.

Edited to add: The card is a piece of 6-1/2" cardstock folded in half.

The Sweet Sunday Stampers also have samples to show you today, so don't forget to stop on by to see:
Now it's your turn! Have fun!
Karen



recipe -
stamps: for all you do (SU!)
ink: regal rose, garden green, certainly celery (SU!)
paper: kraft, whisper white, bashful blue card stock (SU!)
accessories: taylor's tiny twinkles (taylored expressions), certainly celery 5/8" grosgrain ribbon (SU!), scallop edge punch (SU!), stampin' dimensionals (SU!)


Edited to add {again}: I'm sick and tired of Mr. Linky - he doesn't come to work most days and I have to make my own code for these posts. Sooooo... I found a new linking site Simply Linked and this is what I'll be using from now on. You can enter your website/gallery below.

Thanks everyone - the challenge is closed.
