Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 203

Good morning!!  It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Want to play along?  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). 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 SSSC203 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

When I designed this sketch, I had fun, bold sentiment in mind and this fun stamp in Bold Statements from My Favorite Things fit the bill perfectly. 

I started with a Primitive White Card Stock base and decided to have my card open to the side.   I cut another piece of Primitive White and then stamped the Patterned Triangles Background in Grout Gray Ink.  You all are seeing how much I adore Grout Gray this month.  Yum.

I stamped the sentiment in Steel Grey and Electric Red Ink and then cut it out with a Fishtail Flags Layers STAX Die-namics, running it through the machine twice so I could add fishtail both ends.  The heart duo is from the Staggered Heart Border Die-namics.

That's it for now.  The Sweet Sunday Stampers have much more to show you.  Please hop on over and see:
