Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 59


Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the end of my post to enter your card. On Thursday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog. So, as long as your card is linked by 10 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 SSSC59 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

What is up with Blogger? My photos look SO blurry!  Grrr.  Sorry - had to vent a little, LOL!  If you'd like to see the pictures all nice and clear, just click on them and then I'll feel better about spending time editing them.  When I made this sketch, I thought the little white panel would be perfect for a big sentiment, so I grabbed one of the stamps from Easter Blessings and went from there.  I love the cross in this set with all the vines, so a combo was born.  The papers and ribbon are all from the Easter Key Ingredients kit, which makes it super easy and quick to make a card.  I added some wine rhinestones to the corners for a little extra pop.

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have samples to show you today, so don't forget to stop on by to see:

Have fun!

recipe -
