Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 175


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 SSSC175 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 SSSC176!





For my card this week, I used a brand new, soon to be released set from My Favorite Things called I'm Raptor Round Your Finger, which is part of the brand new Doodle Garden line of acrylic stamps.  Yum!!  



Isn't he so sweet!?  I love his little dino costume.  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card Stock and then colored him with Copic Markers.  I cut the image out with a Circle STAX Die-namics and then added a Wild Cherry Button instead of the star element in the sketch.  The hearts along the bottom are the new Layered Heart Border Die-namics and then I stamped the sentiment on the bottom in Black Licorice Ink


I stamped another sentiment inside the card as well and added stitching along the borders.

Please hop on over and check out the fabulous work from the Sweet Sunday Stampers:
