Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 251

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. 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 SSSC251 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

This week's sketch is designed by Barbara Anders and it is a beauty! I really enjoyed this sketch and I know you will too.

Since it's all sorts of winter outside, I am using some spring colors along with Dream Big blossom stamps from Verve.

First, I stamped the Lemon Drop blossom on the edge of the white card stock panel, then stamped the leafy vines in Sour Apple ink in different sizes. I cut out the Scallop Flowers from white card stock and then stamped the blossom again on it so I could pop it up for the circle element in the sketch.

The sentiment is from Better Together and I also used the distressed dots to fill in some of the white space along the bottom.

The rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have much more for you to see this week - please stop over and see:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
