sweet sunday sketch challenge #52



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 SSSC52 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

This sketch is perfect for using up those scraps - I had a bunch of this Fall Flowers paper sitting on my desk, so that's what inspired this card.  I stamped the tree in Memento Rich Cocoa and then inked up the leaves with an Old Olive marker.  Of course, I just HAD to use the apron lace punch again too, *wink*!

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