Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 126

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 SSSC126 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I've been working on a crazy amount of cards this week - getting ready for CHA!  Anyone going?  I'll be at the Taylored Expressions booth along with Sankari, Danielle, and of course Taylor, so stop on by and say hello, make a few make & takes and take pictures - Taylor's booth is always adorable.   In the spirit of CHA, I've made a card using Life Is a Circus from TE along with some sweet Lime Twist Out of the Blue papers.  I kept this one fairly simple and didn't add a lot of layer.  I substituted the 3 brads at the bottom of the sketch for a sentiment and then added a couple of Island Lagoon rhinestones on the image panel instead.  I added a fun litle scallop border using the Small Scallop Border Die.

Here is the Taylored Die I used on today's card:

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