Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 71


Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), and I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog on Saturday. So, as long as your card is linked by 10 PM Friday, 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 SSSC71 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I opted to change the sketch a bit and make my card square since my oval die cut doesn't quite fit a full size card - whoopsies!  The papers and ribbon are all from this month's Project Pantry kit, In the Kitchen from Taylored Expressions - Love, LOVE this kit!  I also picked up the new Daisy Chain punch and it is so much fun to use - I love that it makes a little embellishment rather than a decorated border -so cute.  Plus, the little Tiny Twinkles fit perfectly in the little daisy centers.  The flower image is from Discover Your Wings and I stamped the image once in Old Olive ink and then stamped just the daisies with Close to Cocoa, Summer Sun, and Pumpkin Pie markers, cut them out and popped them up with dimensional tape. 

The Sweet Sunday Stampers also have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
Thanks for taking on the challenge this week!

  4. Oh my that's beautiful! I don't have that stamp set yet, but everytime I see it used like this I think I need it! LOVE these colors and I like the sketch used on a square card. I'll have to remember that since this sketch immediately went into my "Go-To" Sketches folder on the 'ole hard drive! LOVE it.
