Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 181

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 SSSC181 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 SSSC182!

This week I made a card using Big Greetings from My Favorite Things.

I started by stamping the sentiment on some Simple Stories Fabulous 6x6 paper, which had this fantastic frame, and then layered it over a piece of Natural Card Stock.  I embossed a piece of Kraft Card Stock with an embossing folder and then wrapped some Hemp Cord around the card base.  The little tab is one of the Mix & Match Banners Die-namics and I added a Kraft Button on top.

I used the same banner on the inside of the card and stamped another sentiment from Big Greetings next to it on Natural Card Stock.

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have more inspiration for you, so please stop on over and see:
