SSSC77.....No sentiment

GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!! It's 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 almost never make a card without a sentiment on the front, I find it really hard not to, but I couldn't make one work here and I started working on the rest of the card and before I knew it the card was together and I had NO sentiment! LOL!!! Too late now huh? I guess not every card needs one and if any one ask, I planned it that way, yea, that's right I didn't want a sentiment on the front.....that's my story and I am sticking to it!!!!

My card measures 3-1/2 inches by 6-1/4 inches. The base is chocolate chip and I followed that with baja breeze, so glad this color is BACK baby!!! The DS paper is from the Greenhouse Gala paper pack. I stamped the flower from the level 1 hostess set, Because I Care set, onto watercolor paper and with black stazon ink. I then used my aqua painter and baja and certainly celery ink to color the flower. I added some chocolate chip satin ribbon and a trinkets pin from my stash.

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.

Another awesome card. No sentiment is needed, a person can stamp one on the inside, that makes it so versitile. Your coloring is fabulous.
