Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 113


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 SSSC113 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I really had a blast with this sketch and love to play with different items to have peeking over the circle panel.  Today I chose to string balloons from the buttons to the top of the card - pretty fun!  I picked up some Life of the Party paper by Basic Grey and matched it with Make a Wish from Taylored Expressions.  The cake is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics and then I cut it out and popped it up with dimensional tape.  The balloons are cut out with the Make a Wish Balloons dies.

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