SSSC50 Thank You

Good Morning Peeps! Hope you all had a Blessed Holiday!

It is Sunday which means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch we are working with this week:

I started my card with a 5 inch square of almost amethyst card stock. I followed that with a layer of creamy caramel and then the DS paper is from a retired hostess print pack. The image I used is from the up coming occasions mini catalog. It is called "Garden from the Heart". I purchased the clear mount set, just to try them out, I was skeptical, but I have to say I really like them!!!!!

I stamped the image with black stazon onto watercolor paper and used my aqua painter and inks to color it with. I used creamy caramel, chocolate chip, old olive, and almost amethyst ink. I used mys nesties to cut it out and matted it with another in creamy caramel. I added some old olive satin ribbon and old olive brads. The bottom piece is made with Ds paper from the Merry Moments DS pack and a MS punch and the sentiment is from the "For All You Do" stamp set.

I hope you can find time to play with this sketch. 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!
