SSSC128.....Happiness always



Good Morning Peeps!!!
It is Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

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



Cute sketch huh and a tilted panel.....gotta love that!!!

As you can see I messed up a bit on the sketch. I had looked at it before starting my card but not while putting it together, hence the wrong way tilt!!! The rest is right tho!

I wanted to use some of this great new Stampin' Up paper called "Cheerful Treat". I love the colors in this pack. the base of my card is Concord Crush and then I followed that with some Wisteria Wonder and then the DSP.  I added three strips of  Concord Crush Ribbon across the top of the card. I then started the main image panel. Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush and then whisper white.

I had all this done before heading over to me friend Wendy's house for some stamping therapy. I took the set I wanted to use with me the hostess set  "Array of Sunshine". I knew from trial and error that I wanted to make a Melon Mambo layered flower on the main piece and add a couple of other colored flowers to the sides and of course the leaves. I got alot of input from Wendy, she suggested the sentiment and it was also her buttons I used, some she had in her stash, but they matched perfectly.  I cut out several leaves from the sizzix sizzlits little leaves die with some Lucky Limeade card stock. I decide after cutting out the leaves that they needed something so I embossed them with the Square Lattice EF.

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.

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

This is so beautiful. I really like the way you layered the flowers, especially like the leaves - they add so much to the flowers. Very inspirational

I like your wrong way tilt - it looks like the panel is hanging by the flower, see? Maybe I put it the wrong way in my sketch, teehee! This is absolutely gorgeous Vicki! LOVE it!
