SSSC68 Thank You....
GOOD 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:
I have to tell you all how much I struggled with this sketch, funny how sometimes whatever you do just doesn't work or feel right! I just could NOT wrap my little pea brain around this one. I didn't even finish this car til Saturday which is VERY unusual for me, I normally have my card done within a day or two from when Karen gets them to us. It is just how I roll, I am not comfortable with waiting til the last minute. I had lunch with a couple of friends on Friday and I was telling them how I was struggling with my card, of course they just rolled their eyes, they seem to think I NEVER have trouble creating!!! LOL!!
The card base is kraft card stock aka crumb cake, and I followed that up with soft sued and then Bermuda bay. The DS paper is from the Thoroughly Modern paper pack, I have hardly used anything out of this pack, so I had decided in advance to use it and that is how I choose my color scheme. I wanted to use the kraft for my image panel so I choose the Upsy Daisy stamp set to stamp with soft suede onto the kraft. I pierced all around the edges of the panel and added the sentiment, from the same set, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up. I added it to my base with some dimensionals.
I used my photo corner punch, something I haven't pulled out in such a long time. I punched two small photo corners with Bermuda bay card stock and added to opposite corners. I added three small gold pearls to each corner. I then used some kraft taffeta ribbon, (thanks to my friend Lois for that) to tie a bow around the top. I added a small spiral clip to the bow and called it done.
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.
OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:
Karen-the Sweetest Thing
Lynn-The Queen's Scene
Well, thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
