Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 172


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 SSSC172 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 SSSC173!






For my card this week, I used one of my favorite MFT Christmas sets, Christmas Ornaments and matching Christmas Ornaments Die-namics.   



I started by cutting out the ornament in X-Press It Blending Card Stock and then stamped the snowflakes in blue and the stripes in Jellybean Green Ink.  I added some holly leaves in Jellybean Green Card Stock and stamped the sentiment on the smallest Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics

I hung a similar ornament inside, stamping on the little tag and a simple snowflake in Wild Cherry Ink on Paver Red Card Stock


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