SSSC71......Thanks a Gazillion

GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!!! My favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

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

Now don't fall off your chair in shock, but my beautiful stamped image is NOT a SU stamp!!!!

This fabulous image comes from the Unity Stamp set called Moments in Bloom. When I saw this set and this stamp in particular I had to get it! It is my first Unity stamp set and probably won't be my last, I love them!

My card base is chocolate chip and I followed that with whisper white and the DS paper is from the retired Good Morning Sunshine pack. I distressed the edges of the white on the first layer with my distressing tool. I then pierced all around the edge and added four white brads to the corners. The next layer is more of the same DS paper matted with more white that I used my apron lace punch on. I pierced this layer as well.

The main image was colored with markers and then stamped onto whisper white card stock. I used the Labels 4 nesties to cut the image out. I then stamped the sentiment from the "Really Retro" set onto some scrap white with timber brown stazon I added a summer sun corduroy button and then mounted to the card base with dimensionals.

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.
