Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 171


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 SSSC171 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 SSSC172!

I made another Christmas card - finally!  I think this puts my total up to 4.  Haha!



For my card tonight, I started with some Winter Wonderland 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye and matched them with Sour Apple, Sno Cone and Sweet Tooth Card Stock.  I stamped the sentiment from Document It: December on a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and then added a simple Let It Snowflake Die-namics on the main circle.  I couldn't help but put a big Sour Apple Button in the center as well. 


I stamped on the inside of the card as well using Seasonal Sentiments, which is currently the Triple Scoop stamp set, which you can earn for free with a $60 purchase in the MFT Boutique.

Be sure to stop by and see what the Sweet Sunday Stampers have inspired you with tonight too -
