Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 259 - and a CHANGE

Hello and happy Sunday! I have an exciting announcement for you today - as of this very moment, the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge has moved to its very own blog!

I am so very grateful to the SSSC team for all of their help in getting this move completed smoothly and I do hope you will enjoy the new space. Hop on over and check it out HERE. You will be able to post your challenge cards and projects over there.

Since we have a new place for the SSSC, you will be able to see all of the Sweet Sunday Stampers' designs all in one place, which will certainly inspire your creativity through the week.

We will also be showcasing some of our favorite cards each Wednesday, so be on the lookout for that new feature! We are very excited about that.

This week, the challenge is to create a new card using a sketch favorite from all of the past sketches. It's SO difficult to choose just one! I thought I'd go way, way back and use sketch SSSC83.  You can find all of the past sketches at the SSSC Flickr page.

I have always been a complete sucker for flower and leaf dies, so this sketch is one of my absolute favorites.

The card base is 4-3/4" square and I'm using patterned paper from Cut & Paste "Adorbs" and "Presh" by My Mind's Eye. The sentiment is from Cheerful Blessings and I stamped it in Nightshift Blue ink. I used the Flower Medley Die-namics set for the blossoms and the Leafy Branch die for the greenery. Love that combo!

Don't forget to stop by the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog, where you can find all the details and the link-up for your project.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
