SSSC150........Sending Many Thanks

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 broke out some "new" goodies again for this card, the Stampin Up "Bordering on Romance" stamp set and some of the oh so pretty, "Twitterpated" DSP.
I stamped the flower image onto some confetti cream card stock twice and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads.  I used blushing bride, riding hood red, pear pizzazz, old olive, daffodil delight and island indigo for the colors of the flower spray.
I cut out part of the flower and layered it onto the first with some dimesionals.
The base of the card is Blushing Bride card stock and I followed
 that up with some riding hood red card stock and then a piece of the DS.
I used another piece of the DSP across the bottom and I die cut the edge with one of the new edgeleits.
I then used another piece of riding hood red card stock and embossed it with the Square Lattice embossing folder.

I added some blushing bride ribbon across the bottom and for the piece behind the main image  on the sketch I took just a bit of artistic license and used some pearl swirls.
I added more pearls to the flower centers and to the corners of the card.
The sentiment is from the Stampin Up Petite Pairs stamp set.

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!!!
