sweet sunday sketch challenge #6

Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use Mr. Linky down at the end of my post to enter your card. On Thursday at 2 PM (Mountain Time), I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog. So, as long as your card is linked in the Mr. Linky box by 2 PM Thursday, your card will be in the drawing. 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 SSSC06 if you plan to post your card at SplitcoastStampers.

I thought I'd dig out one of my favorite sets from last year, Live Your Dream. I haven't used this one in a while and it was crying out from its shelf, poor thing. I ran the Soft Sky/Afternoon Tea layer of the card through my Cuttlebug with the D'vine Swirls embossing folder to give it some dimension. You may need to click on the photo to get a better look at it. I didn't have enough room to tie a knot in the ribbon along the side of the panel, so I used the horizontal slit punch to run the ribbon through the panel instead.

Now it's your turn to try out the sketch - have a great day!

recipe -
stamps: live your dream
ink: river rock, wild wasabi, soft sky, groovy guava, bayou blue
paper: wild wasabi, soft sky, whisper white cardstock, afternoon tea dsp
accessories: vintage brads, groovy guava double stitched grosgrain ribbon, stampin' dimensionals, horizontal slit punch
