SSSC105......Vintage Easter




GOOD MORNING PEEPS!!! It's Sunday which means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

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





I started my card with a base of Crumb Cake card stock, I then followed that with some always artichoke card stock and the designer paper on here is from the Springtime Vintage paper pack. My image comes from the Stampin Up Easter Blossoms stamp set. I stamped the girl image onto very vanilla card stock with Crumb cake ink. I colored in the eggs in her basket very lightly with some baja breeze ink and my aqua painter. I matted the image with a scallop circle cut from always artichoke card stock. I added tiny little pearls around the scallop. I used some baja breeze seam binding ribbon and Victoria crochet trim to wrap around and tie a bow. I then added three pearls on the upper left corner. I thought my card needed a sentiment and frankly I have a very hard time making a card without one but left this one without a sentiment for a whole day. When I went to photograph the card I just had to try and add one. I stamped the Happy Easter which is from teeny tiny wishes and punched it out with the jewelry tag punch, I offset a mat on these with another jewelry punch in artichoke card stock. I did cut off the top of the tag on the punched pieces.


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.
