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.
