Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 156

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 SSSC156 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 SSSC157!

This week's sketch is designed by our very own Lynn Put, based on this card.  I loved it so much that I just had to ask her if I could make into a sketch.  Love those banners!!  I made a card using MFT's Vertical Greetings Stamps & Die-namics for you today.

I stamped the greeting in Brilliance Graphite Black ink on Follow Your Heart Be Happy 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye.  This sketch was perfect for the new Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics.

The inside is pretty simple - just a sheet of Be Happy paper with a stamped sentiment from Finishing Flourishes.

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
Here are the Die-namics I used today:
