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 made this card on Monday, so I had Memorial Day on the brain and I pulled out this old, old SU set, Thankful Thoughts, I believe is the name, there is not a name on the box but I am fairly sure that is the name. It is a set I bought off of e-bay a few years back. I just love it and can't seem to part with it!
I did know that I didn't want to use the traditional Americana colors on this one so I finally decided on pretty in pink and basic black.
My card base is basic black and I followed that with a layer of pretty in pink. The next layer is a piece of dotted acetate that comes from the retired Night and Day DS paper, I had never used this particular piece from the pack, I really didn't know what to use it for, but I think it looks great on a colored piece of card stock.
The main image is stamped with black stazon onto the pretty in pink card stock and is matted with basic black. I pierced all around the edge. The side piece is again pretty in pink and basic black, I used the swiss dot embossing folder on the pretty in pink card stock. I added some basic black satin ribbon and bow. The square brads where some I purchased a long time back, I thought I had picked up round ones but when I got them home and opened them up I see they are square. The are kinda of a nice contrast against all the dots here.
My sentiment comes from the "On your Birthday" set and I masked off the 'let's" and just inked up the "celebrate" and used my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp it out three times.
I am working on a set of these cards with the same colors and stamp set, so Look for those in the next few days.
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:
