Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 69

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 very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close on Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), and I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog on Saturday. So, as long as your card is linked by 10 PM Friday, 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 SSSC69 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I got some new Verve in my happy mail last week and I've been itching to ink it up - I paired it with that really ancient Simply Scrappin' Kit called Friends & Flowers and I can't believe I still have this sitting around!  You get new paper and the old stuff gets pushed to the bottom of the pile.  Anyway, this ended up being a super quick card to make and I'm thinking it's missing something.  Ribbon, definitely ribbon.  It's a pretty rare phenomenon when I forget or neglect my beloved ribbon! 

Don't forget about The Sweet Sunday Stampers - they also have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
Thanks for taking on the challenge this week! 

recipe -
stamps: happy days (verve stamps)

  2. I'm pretty sure that I have loads of that paper hanging out around one of my bins too!
