SSSC47 Thank You




Good Sunday Morning Peeps!!

It is my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the sketch we are working with this week:



Last week while checking out Jen's Sketch for You to Try I saw this adorable card made by Leigh O'Brien. I loved those scruncy flowers. She had a link in her blog to where she had seen the flowers and a link to a little tutorial on how to make these.

I wanted to make some right away, so I pulled out some of the fabulous Night & Day DS paper and my scallop circle punch and went to work. I used some scraps from that Night & Day DS paper that was in my pack and punched out 9 circles and hooked them together with a brad and started pulling up and scrunching the circles and this fabulous little scruncy flower emerged! So I tried it again and made another, so easy peasy, lemon squeezy. I loved them so much I wanted to put them on a card so I pulled out Karen's Sketch and this is what I came up with.

Not much stamping on this one, just the sentiment from the "Thank You Kindly" stamp set. The leaves are cut from the "little leaves" sizzlits die. The rest is just layering up of basic black card stock and the DS paper.

I sure hope you can find some time to play along with us this week. Come join in on the fun and create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen's blog and link your card using Mr. Linky so all of us can see your creation!
