SSSC57 You Crack me Up!

Good Sunday Morning Peeps!! My favorite time of the week is here, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!

I have to pinch myself every week to believe that I am on this fabulous sketch team with some really talented stampers!!! This week's sketch is a dosey, and there has been alot of talk back and forth among some of the sketch team about this one!! LOL!!!

Here is the sketch:

I didn't know immediately what to do with this sketch but after thinking about it a bit decide on DS paper for those BG strips. I like the end result. Then the big dilemma what to use for my focal point. I knew it needed to be fun and funky to go with the DS paper, something I am not good with, give me some pretty flowers any day, but I am trying to break out of my comfort zone! I finally landed on this little ducky from the SU "Animal Crackers" set. He is cute right? And very fitting I might add as the sketch was a bit of a "quack up"!!!! :)

the inside:

Well, that is all from me I hope you can find some time to play along this week.

Totally sweet Vicki! Love your those papers, and that image is adorable! Beautifull card, inside and out!

Jen Tapler said...

Yep - PERFECT!! I love those papers and I love the gradation of color from dark on bottom to light on top (not sure if you did that intentionally, but it's very striking). THIS is how that sketch was intended to be used!
