Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 158

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 SSSC158 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 SSSC158!

Good morning!  I've been itching to get my Every Child stamps inky again for a while and I grabbed some brand new Indie Chic Citron 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye to inspire me.  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored her with Copic Markers - I also added some shine to the paint with my glaze pen.  The sentiment is stamped directly on the patterned paper, so I hope you can read it through that crazy design.  It's one of those 'added it at the last minute' ideas that I'm not so sure worked as well as I thought it would.  Haha!  I added some stitching around the edges of the layers and some yummy kraft ribbon with a bow instead of a flower from the sketch.

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
