SSSC103...Just For You




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:



This sketch and this card makes me HAPPY!!! I love the big ol folded fan circle, I did get a bit carried away with all the stuff going on here but I just couldn't help myself! The card itself is fairly big, bigger than most I make, this one is a 5-1/2 square. I used Crumb Cake for the base and them a layer of basic black and then a layer of riding hood red. I embossed that layer with the Vintage Wall EF. I had to run it through twice to get all the paper embossed. The folded fan circle is made with paper from the Newsprint DSP. I used two strips, 2-1/4" X 12 scored at 1/4" intervals to make the circle.

The center square is made up of basic black, crumb cake and very vanilla with a bit of newsprint DSP in the corner. I added a heart and the little valentine girl from the Greeting Card Kids stamp set. I also added a flag sentiment and antique brad.

The strip across the bottom us basic black and DSP from the Love Letters pack. I added a strip of very vanilla that I punched with the lace edge punch. I added black pearls and some black taffeta ribbon to finish it off.

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.
