Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 151

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 in two weeks, next Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time). 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 SSSC151 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

WANT TO BE A GUEST Sweet Sunday Stamper?  I'll be picking my favorite card or project after each challenge and that winner will have a special guest spot as a designer on a future Sweet Sunday Challenge.  I'm SO excited about this!  You can enter as many different cards as you'd like before the following Friday deadline, so get stampy!

I will be announcing the next Guest Sweet Sunday Stamper later this week, so be sure to check back to see if you will be joining the design team for SSS152!


I'm typing this post while it is snowing outside and looking at this spring tree and green grass makes me wonder how many more snow storms we'll have before the tulips pop up?  Sigh.  I'm using some Taylored Expressions stamps today - this tree is from Love Grows Here.  I had to stretch the sketch a bit to accomodate the long image and then I added some Small Scallops underneath instead of over the top of the image.  Hope you all don't mind, haha!   I sewed 2 Grass Border strips over the base of the tree (LOVE that!) and then added some stitching around the sentiment too.  Just a little bit sewing machine crazy today.


I had to add some yummy rhinestone centers to the blossoms on the tree.  I can't help myself.  The papers are A Walk in the Park from Echo Park.

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Karen
