Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 233

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 SSSC233 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

It's been a slow and monotonous journey moving files from our online backup to the new computer.  To make things more tricky, I switched from a PC to a Mac.  It's a good thing my kids know how to use a Mac, because I'm lost.  I'm getting the hang of it, but my old PC shortcut habits are driving me absolutely nuts!

I have a card for you today using Simply Fabulous Saying from My Favorite Things.  I'm a sucker for sentiment sets, gotta say.

I started with a white card stock base and then cut out another white panel and stamped the Diagonal Stripes background in Grout Gray ink.  The sentiment is stamped in Grout Gray and Electric Red and then I layered on the Horizonal Stitched Strip.  I love this color combo - it's one I go to whenever I'm stuck and need a kick in the creative pants.

That's it for me.  Be sure to stop by and see what the Sweet Sunday Stampers have made for you today:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
