sweet sunday sketch challenge #7

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 SSSC07 if you plan to post your card at SplitcoastStampers.

This week's sketch is inspired (ok, copied really) from this card by the *fabulous* Jodi Collins over at Stamping A Latte. Jodi has SO many great cards on her blog, so please go by and see her gorgeous creations. I chose to use Maine Blueberry paper again for this card - I can't help it, I love it! I am a little bummed the sentiment doesn't stand out more, but I guess I should have realized that when I used patterned paper, ha!

Ok, now it's your turn! I can't wait to see what you create.

recipe -
stamps: pocket silhouettes
ink: not quite navy
paper: bashful blue, not quite navy, stampers select white (papertrey ink) carstock, maine blueberry dsp
accessories: not quite navy stitched grosgrain ribbon, circle/scallop nestabilities, scallop edge punch, stampin dimensionals
