Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 187

Good morning!!  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 SSSC187 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.


I'm already mixing it up with this sketch - I'm such a trouble maker!  I changed up the circle and used an Oval STAX Die-namics for my sweet little Pure Innocence Make a Wish girl and then I flipped the sketch.



I grabbed some Gnome Sweet Gnome 6x6 paper from My Mind's Eye and layered up all sorts of different patterns here.  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on X-Press It Blending Card Stock and then colored her with Copic Markers.  I stamped her again on a scrap piece of patterned paper so I could paper piece her gingham dress.  Too cute!  I used a few Prismacolor Pencils to color in the grass at her feet.


I stamped the sentiment inside the card on Smooth White Card Stock with Black Licorice Ink and then used some zigzag stitching around the borders.

Be sure to visit the Sweet Sunday Stampers - there is lots more eye candy out there for you.
