SSSC67 Celebrate

GOOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!!! My favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

Here is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week:

Don't you just LOVE this sketch??!!!!

My card this week uses the "Fifth Avenus Floral" stamp set. I stamped the rose onto pretty in pink cardstock with versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I then went in with pretty in pink ink on a dauber and added in color to darken a bit. I then cut out the rose and set it aside. The base of the card is kraft, or should I say Crumb Cake, and the DS paper is from the "Sweet Pea" paper pack. I used basic black for my mats on the DS paper and the sentiment panel. The sentiment comes from "A Little Birthday Cheer" stamp set. I really like that sentiment, I think it would be great just for an any occasion card to a friend, Just to clelbrate them and your friendship!

I thought my rose needed something so I cut a few leaves with my sizzix Little Leaves die and added them in behind the rose that is mounted with foam tape to the base. I added three mini black brads as well.

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.

That giant rose is awesome, Vicki! Love the effect of the white embossing and the sponged on ink! We were thinking alike this week with our Fifth Avenue Floral cards.
