SSSC52 Sweet Thoughts

Good Sunday Morning Peeps! It is one of my favorite times of the week.....time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!

Here is our sketch for this week:

I so love this set "Wandering Words" from the first time I say it in the last mini. I had not inked up this particular stamp from the set, so I wanted to use it. I used my markers in old olive basic black and real red to color directly onto the stamp. I huffed on in after I had finished coloring and then stamped onto some whisper white card stock.

The base of my card is real red and I followed that with some whisper white that I had ran through the cuttlebug with my swiss dot embossing folder. I used the scallop edge punch on one end of the white piece. The real red DS paper is from a retired hostess print pack. I then added a strip of real red card stock down the side of the print paper. I added some piercing on the strip. The main image panel is matted with some more real red card stock and mounted to the base with some dimensional. I used a spiral clip with some real red grosgrain ribbon to the corner and three red brads to the main image panel.

Well, that is all from me, be sure and check out the other samples from the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team
