sweet sunday sketch challenge #43


Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the Mr. Linky box 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 Mr. Linky 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 SSSC43 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I have another Christmas card for you today - what can I say? I'm in the mood for all things Christmas lately. This week's sketch is inspired by this card by Susan Liles, isn't it so cute? Tilted panels are a huge challenge for me and if you have followed my blog, you may know that I've only done 2 cards with tilted panels. I think Jennifer Tapler is having a coronary over this sketch too - we're right angle kind of paper crafters, lol! Sorry Jen! So with that said, I want to let you know that I'm challenging myself as well with these crazy sketches *wink*.

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
