SSSC133....Happy Anniversary



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:



I know I say this almost every week, but this is a GREAT sketch, simple and clean, gotta love it!!

I started the card with a base of Pretty in Pink card stock and then I followed that with some Pear Pizzazz card stock. The DSP I used is from the Soft Subtles DSP.
The stamp set I used is the Stampin Up "Simply Soft" a beautiful Hostess set. I stamped the flower three times with black stazon onto white card stock. I colored in with my aqua painter using pink pirouette, pretty in pink and melon mambo ink. The leaves and stem is done with certainly celery, pear pizzazz and some old olive ink. I matted the circle with a scallop Melon Mambo. I added two rows of scallops in melon and pear card stock. I then scrunched some white taffeta ribbon across the top of the scallops. I added the main image panel to the card with some dimensionals.



The sentiment is from the "A Word for You" stamp set, I just masked off the part I wanted to use. I stamped with black ink onto white card stock. I matted with some pretty in pink and cut both ends into "V's" I added a small little melon flower with a small pearl onto the sentiment flag and three basic pearls finished it up!

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:







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

So soft & pretty. I love the color combination. The layout is perfect for the look of the card. Keep seeing lots of great ideas with this hostess set. So impressed with your aqua painting. Definitely have not mastered that yet.
