sweet sunday sketch challenge #18

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 SSSC18 if you plan to post your card at SplitcoastStampers.

I'm going back to basics with this card today: stamps, ink, and paper. Can you believe not an ounce of ribbon, or brads, or buttons? I know, it's shocking! I actually sat there pondering where to put an embellishment or two, but I just couldn't figure it out. They say when you start to hover over the card, you're done, so I stopped - lol.
OK, now it's your turn - have fun!

recipe -
stamps: cheep talk, trendy trees
ink: old olive, tempting turquoise, so saffron, rose red
paper: tempting turquoise, rose red, so saffron, whisper white cardstock, turquoise dsp (retired)
accessories: stampin' dimensionals
