Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 133

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 SSSC133 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I have a fun stamp from The Cat's Pajamas again for you today - this is Bearing Flowers.  Isn't he sweet?  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored him with Copic markers and then stamped the flower again and cut it out to pop it up over the edge of the circle.  Sometimes you just have to make your image fit your sketch, haha!  Since the sentiment was wider than I was wanting, I stamped it twice and then cut out the 'your' with a rectangle nestability die and popped it up with foam tape.  I'm thinking maybe I should have sponged the edges or something, but I'm not going to worry about that now that it's all assembled.  You know how it is, LOL! 

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!
