Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 91

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 SSSC91 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

Hey look!  Its Trendy Trees and a SU Only card!  I haven't used a Stampin' Up! stamp in what seems like ages - this is one of my favorite sets and I love to mix up the leaf colors with this topper stamp.  The tree trunks are stamped in Chocolate Chip and the leaves are stamped in Pumpkin Pie and then I colored some of the leaves again with an Old Olive marker.  I cut the image out with the small oval Nestabilities die and then sponged the edges of both the white and So Saffron cardstock with Pumpkin Pie ink.  Add a few buttons and some satin ribbon and we're good to go!

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

Thanks for taking on the challenge this week!
