Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 218

Good morning!!  It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Want to play along?  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 on 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 SSSC218 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I stamped!! Yay!  It's been about 2 weeks since I last put ink to paper and it feels good to get back on that horse.  This is a great sketch for a bold sentiment stamp, which really helps to make a quick card.

I inked up this greeting from MFT's Vertical Greetings stamp set and stamped it in Black Licorice Ink on Smooth White Card Stock.  I used the Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-namics to cut it out and the placed it over a piece of Kraft.  I used the Polka Dot Cover-Up Die-namics in the background with Sno Cone Card Stock.  The color palette is the May Color Palette Challenge from MFT. 

Be sure to stop by and see what the Sweet Sunday Stampers have whipped up for you today:
