Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 226

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 SSSC226 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

In my ongoing effort to organize myself, I have found some much neglected stamps from Papertrey Ink. I've had several "I forgot about this one!" moments this past week or so and I am getting my creative mojo going again.  Yay!!

I stamped the leafy vine from Turning a New Leaf in Grout Gray Ink, adding the sentiment over the top in Black Licorice.  I added a Tangy Orange flower from the Flower Medley Die-namics set and added a few little rhinestones in the center.  I thought the stamped vine made the flower look a little lopsided, so I cut out a leaf trio from the Flower Box Die-namics set in Grout Gray card stock and I hope it brought a little balance back. 

That's it for me today.  Be sure to see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have created this week:
