Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 166


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 SSSC166 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 SSSC167!

I made a card using all sorts of Die-namics with a sentiment from Let's Toast.



I started by cutting out all the die elements - the triangle banner was created with the Banner Day Die-namics and Wild Cherry, Berrylicious, Cotton Candy, and Pumpkin Pie cardstock and I added some small Sour Apple Buttons with Flax Twine on the ends of the banners to make it look like the buttons are holding them all together.  The sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and then I cut it out with a Circle STAX Set 1 Die-namics die and layered it over the Award Seal Die-namics for a fun look.

I do hope you will play along - it's such a fun sketch and you can find more inspiration from the Sweet Sunday Stampers:
Thanks so much for stopping by!

That banner is so perfect! It's bold without taking away from the rest of the card. I had a great time playing along this week. And contrary to me fear, I didn't need to make eight cards to come up with one I liked. Once I started thinking about what would make my MIL smile, it just came together. Thanks again for including me as part of the design team this week. It truly is an honor to be in the same list with stampers whose blogs I haunt on a regular basis because of their amazing talent and ongoing inspiration.

I started out with this PP and scrapped the whole card. LOL! Love the way you used it. I may have to rescue mine from the "round file". LOL! Thanks for another fabby sketch. I'm obessed with my new corner banner die. :)
