Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 143

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 SSSC143 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

Someone had asked me whether I make my card before or after I draw up the sketch - I almost always draw up the sketch first and then make my card.  It's a rare thing when I make a card without using a sketch for a template - it's like I'm lost and wandering around and I can't start my journey without first having a map.  Anyone else like that?  Usually I'm making my SSSC card 2 hours before the post goes live - that's how I roll.  I'm fairly certain there are people who find the SSSC sketch preview on Facebook and complete their card before me!


For this week's card, I picked up an a la mode - Something's Fishy from My Favorite Things and paired it with 6x6 Splash papers from Echo Park.  I just can't help it - if it's about water or sea life, I have to use Splash!  The sentiment is from Say What and I used the coordinating Say What Die-namics for the thought bubble. 


The Sweet Sunday Stampers have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
