sweet sunday sketch challenge #41


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 SSSC41 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I just realized that I'm using the same stamp set and colors from last week's sketch, too funny! Today's card was inpired by this card by Lynn - I loved the way she layered the flowers and curled up the edges of the petals. I added some clear rhinestone brads to the pink flower centers and also some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the little flowers. Adding rhinestones really adds some dimension to a card - I just love using them!

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

I've tried several times to link my blog with sample, but for some reason it won't take it. Didn't have any trouble last week...so don't know what the deal is. But here's my sample.
