Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 159

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 SSSC159 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 SSSC160!

I inked up my Pure Innocence Giraffe Girl stamps today and matched her up with some Indie Chic Nutmeg 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye.  Yep, more Indie Chic for you.  haha!  I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black in and colored her with Copic markers.  I added the sentiment on Kraft cardstock using the Mini Tabs Foursome and tucked it underneath the main image panel.  I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics dies in some scraps to create the little banners hanging down from the top of my card and I finished it with a big loopy bow.

The inside of my card is stamped simply and I added another sentiment from the set and some zigzag stitching around the panel.

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