Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 155

 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 in two weeks, next Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time). 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 SSSC155 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

WANT TO BE A GUEST Sweet Sunday Stamper?  I'll be picking my favorite card or project after each challenge and that winner will have a special guest spot as a designer on a future Sweet Sunday Challenge.  I'm SO excited about this!  You can enter as many different cards as you'd like before the following Friday deadline, so get stampy!

I will be announcing the next Guest Sweet Sunday Stamper later this week, so be sure to check back to see if you will be joining the design team for SSSC156!

Spring fever has hit my household and we've been de-cluttering the closets and we've been out in the yard getting rid of all the dead winter "stuff".  Feels SO good!  Like starting fresh.  For my card today, I've used the Spring a la Carte stamp from Taylored Expressions along with A Walk in the Park 6x6 papers from Echo Park.  Seems only appropriate.  The image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Copic markers.  I used the small flower die from Bugabee Flowers, which fits perfectly in the stamped flower - love it when that happens, because that was WAY easier than cutting all those petals with scissors.   I added a little black brad in the center and then sewed all the layers together.  No foam tape today - GASP! 

I used several Taylored Dies and Copic markers today:
