SSSC122....thinking of you

Good Morning Peeps!!!

 It is Sunday so that means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the fun sketch Karen has for us this week:

I varied the sketch just a bit by bringing in my DSP layer just a bit. The base of the card is Riding Hood Red card stock. I followed that up with some crumb cake card stock and the DS paper is from a retired pack, I am not sure of the name.

The bowl of cherries stamp is from a new set that will be available in July and is called "Cherish Friendship". I stamped the image with black stazon onto some watercolor paper. I colored in the image with riding hood red, old olive and soft suede ink. The image is layered onto a die cut which is from the Perfect Pennants die. I added some crystal effects to the cherries and added some silver pearls all around the die cut.

The sentiment is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set.

I added three silver brads to the top corner. I kept my design CAS. I really love this new stamp set. Cute huh?

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with and don't forget to link it up over at Karen's blog for all of us to see.

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