Sweet Sketch



Hello Peeps!

Today's card is made with the sketch on Karen's Blog "The Sweetest Thing".

I started my card with the DP paper from SU called Candy Lane and I just used the colors from it. Very vanilla, riding hood red, pink pirouette and close to cocoa. The base is close to cocoa followed by riding hood red and then the designer paper. I again used the flowers from the Petal Pizazz set and layered them up with dimensionals. They just begged me too!!! LOL! :)

The sentiment is from the set "All Holidays" and this particular stamp had never seen ink, so it was about time.

The flower center is a brad from the silver hodge-podge kit and the center is just a small circle of RHR with some crystal effects on it. I also made some "faux" brads the same way. I just punched a few circles with my 1/4" punch attached a small glue dot to them and put them on a sheet of the slick paper I had saved from the dimensionals, so it would be easy to pull them up when dry, and added some crystal effects.

I added some pink ribbon and a little pirecing to finish it off. I finally was able to complete a Stampin' Up only card. Everytime I try, I seem to always add something that is not, but this time I did it! My friend Lois told me yesterday to quit trying so hard and then I could do it! LOL!!! Funny, I didn't even think about it with this card and I did it!

Well that seems to be all for today, thanks sooooo much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Gorgeous card! I really like your idea for the faux brads too - might have to try that one and start saving my dimensional sheets! Thanks so much for participating!
