SSSC78.....Because I Care

GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!! It's my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

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

Love this new Pear Pizzazz in color from SU! I used it for the base of my 5 inch square card. I followed it up with some chocolate chip card stock and then the DS paper is from the Greenhouse Gala paper pack.

For my main image panel I used the Watercolor Trio stamp set. I used pumpkin pie and pear pizzazz to color the flowers and stamped them several times before re-inking. I matted the image with chocolate chip. The next layer is more pear pizzazz that I embossed with the square lattice EF. I added a chocolate chip strip behind that and a chocolate chip photo corner under the embossed piece. The sentiment is from the Because I Care stamp set. I stamped it with chocolate chip ink onto whisper white and punched it out with my large oval punch and matted with the scallop oval punch. I then punched a flower with the retired 3 flower punch and added a white brad a added that to the sentiment piece. I used a new punch for the butterfly, a MS punch, I used some of the DS paper from the same pack and added pearls down the center. I finished it off with some chocolate chip satin ribbon.

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.
