sweet sunday sketch challenge #20

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 SSSC20 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

Today's sketch comes to you from Paper Crafts Magazine, page 57 in the May/June issue, and it just happens that the card I was inspired by is made by fellow Baker's Dozen gal, Ana Wohlfahrt, isn't that cool?! I was flipping through pages trying to find some sketch inspiration and instantly stopped on this page when I saw her darling lollipop card. You may be surprised to see I've used Trendy Trees, lol! I really just can't help myself, plus I'm trying to use up the last bits and pieces of Maine Blueberry - the new catalog will be coming out in a few months and I need to clear out some space! I'm excited to see what Stampin' Up! will be offering this summer - definitely be looking for another embellishment and paper share - *wink*

Now it's your turn - have fun!

recipe -
stamps: trendy trees
ink: old olive, not quite navy
paper: bashful blue, old olive, not quite navy, whisper white cardstock, maine blueberry dsp
accessories: circle & labels 1 nestabilities (spellbinders), vintage brads, stampin' dimensionals


  1. Beautiful card, fantastic layout!!! Can't wait to have a play. Now I'm hoping for tonight... but you know me, it will probably be my usual Wednesday night antic... hahaha.
