SSSC118......Perfect Adventure



Good Morning Peeps!!! It is Sunday so that means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Sample. 

Here is the fabulous sketch that Karen has for us this week:



I pulled out the fun Stampin' Up set "On the Grow" to use for this sketch. I had not inked up the cute little vespa stamp in this set and this sketch had the perfect image panel for it.

I wasn't sure how to color my vespa so I just did a google search and found alot of images of real vespas to copy from. I knew I wanted to make mine red, that would be the color I would get if I ever got one! LOL!!
I used real red and riding hood red for the body of the bike and then used basic gray for the rest. I colored in the flowers and flower pots with poppy parade, daffodil delight, old olive and cajun craze. I used soft suede for the ground and added some baja blue for the sky, but that doesn't show much in the picture. I then shadowed around the image with a bit of crumb cake.  I matted the image with basic black card stock



The base of the card is basic black and then very vanilla. The DSP is from the Love Letters pack. I used the Perfect trimmings die for the large scallop across the bottom and added some basic black satin ribbon and tied a bow. I then added some silver pearls across the scallop piece and at the top corners of the image piece.


OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:







Well, thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

What a cute card...especially in these classic colors! Have been thinking about you and all the others in Missouri...hope you are safe and did not experience devastation with the tornadoes!

Just a note to let everyone know that I've been in touch with Vicki and she & her family are fine. Joplin is a hop skip & jump from Webb City where Vicki is from and they are safe but they have no cable or internet service due to the tornado that went thru Joplin. It may be awhile till cable service is returned and once it is back on I know she'll return.
Keep Joplin in your thoughts & prayers!!

Vicki I'm so relieved to hear you and your family are safe! The tornadoes we have been watching on the news have been devastating! Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers!
