Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 86

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 SSSC86 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I was looking through my patterned paper and I found some of this delish Bloom & Grow from My Mind's Eye that I haven't used in a very long time and paired it with Cupcake Collections from PTI.  I colored the cupcake in with Copics and added a little Brights collection button on the side.  And let's not forget all those rhinestone sprinkles!

This is the last in our "Invisibility Lounge" napkin series and when I look at this sketch, it just makes me giggle.  Especially when Nancy emails me and says, "I made that sketch?"  I think the "Love you Karen" on the bottom says it all - must have been in the "I love you, man!" stage of the night.  Bwahaha! 

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
