Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 84


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 SSSC84 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

Welcome to week 2 of our fabulous little mini-series, "Sketches From the Invisibility Lounge" by Nancy McKinney.   I made this card for my MIL's wedding, which was Saturday afternoon - all 5 of her grandkids were in it and I can't wait to see what kind of photographs I have of them!  They were all so dapper - the boys in their little suits and the girls in their ivory dresses.  Makes my heart melt.  The wedding was in a botanical garden and so I wanted to make a card using the flower theme and color scheme {although I added the blue - call it artistic license}.  I just got my Pixie-Licious Mini-Deck and wanted to tear into it.  I love cutting into brand new papers!  And, true to form, I didn't leave any room for a sentiment on the outside of my card, but the inside says, "To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides. - David Viscott"  Isn't that beautiful!?  The stamps are some previously uninked Verve, Feel the Sun.  New stamps, new papers - ahhh, it's a good day. 


The Sweet Sunday Stampers have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
Nancy Riley is taking some time off, but I know she'd love for you to stop by and say hello.

Thanks for taking on the challenge this week! 
Karen

  1. Take a "u" for $150...seems like you've lost them on that side of the border!

    Beautiful card! Love your flowers and those big scallops. I know I'll end up "needing" them.
