SSSC80.......For All You Do

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:

OK I have to admit I am slow to get on the bandwagon of the vintage/distress trend, I really have trouble with the whole distress thingy, it goes against the grain for me, I am a clean, crisp and layers type girl. I LOVE all the vintage I am seeing, I just don't do it so well.

This card is a 5 inch square and the base is made with crumb cake card stock and then I followed that up with real red. The next layer is more crumb cake and I distressed this layer with my distressing tool. I used the stamp set, Just Believe and For All You Do. I inked up the flower with my markers and stamped onto whisper white, I used the spiral edge punch on each white piece. I sponge with my crumb cake ink pad and distressed and ripped and folded. The two side pieces are stamped with sentiments from the For All You Do Stamp set. I added a bow, some red brads and a mini library clip.

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.
