Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 124



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 SSSC124 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I still had Life is a Circus on my desk from the Taylored Expressions release week and so I inked it up again for grins and giggles - it's really difficult to resist especially when it's sitting next to a pack of Lime Twist Fly a Kite paper!  I stamped this sweet elephant in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored him with Copics and popped him up over a sheet of paper I embossed with the Stars Impression Plate.  For the thin little layers in the background, I used the new Star Border Die on both red and Choice Snow White cardstock creating the filled in star centers.  The stars in the corner were made with the Seeing Stars Die and I used a Nested Pennant Nestabilities die for the sentiment banner.

Here are the dies and impresson plate I used for my card:
