SSSC66 Hello

Good Sunday Morning Peeps!! It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch!!!

Here is the fabulous sketch we are working with this week:

Does my card look a bit familiar this week? It is very similar to this one I posted a few days back. I am working on a set for a neighbor, using the same stamp set and colors. OK this is second in a series of hopefully at least 4.

I used rich razzlebery card stock for the base and I followed that with some whisper white and then pale plum. (So sad to lose that color.) I used a cuttlebug EF on the pale plum. The DS paper is from the Cottage Wall paper pack. The stamp set is the new "Elements of Style" that will be in the new mini. I stamped the flowers onto whisper white with rich razzleberry ink and then quickly went in with my aqua painter and swirled around the ink on the flowers. I then added a bit of summer sun to the flower centers and some old olive to the leaves. I added an old olive grosgrain bow and the sentiment tag is from a sizzlits die, "Round tags". I used a sentiment from the "teeny Tiny Wishes set and just inked up the portion I wanted and used my stamp-a-ma-jig to center it on the tag. I add the tag with a bit of twine and then added white brads to the corners.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
