SSSC88....Because I Care




GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!! It's my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

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





The base of my card is Cajun Craze and The DS paper I used is from the Autumn Spice paper pack. I stamped the leaf from the Growing Green stamp set onto water color paper with black stazon. I colored the leaf in with my aqua painter and some more mustard and cajun craze ink from my ink pads. I outlined the whole image with some crumb cake ink. From the first time I spotted this stamp set in the catalog I have been imagining this leaf done in some glorious fall colors, I love it! After finishing the coloring, I ran it through my cuttlebug with the square lattice embossing folder. I matted it with cajun craze card stock. The sentiment is from the Because I care stamp set. I added some very vanilla ribbon and the center brad is from the antique brads. I used the scallop edge punch along the edge first with very vanilla and then with a piece of the DS paper from the same pack.


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.

You win! The whole sketch team always provides a lot of great inspiration for Karen's sketch, but generally speaking there is one that wows me more than the others. Today, that would be your card. It is perfect! I especially love the way you did the scalloped border.
