SSSC91......Peace On Earth

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

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

I started my card with a base of Soft Suede card stock. I followed that with a layer of Cherry Cobbler card stock, I love that color. The DSP is from the Deck the Halls paper pack. I divided the sheet into three strips, following the sketch. The stamp set I used is The Level 2 Hostess set "Peaceful Season" from the mini. I stamped the holly leaves with Always artichoke ink onto the very vanilla card stock, first stamping off once onto scrap paper. I stamped the sentiment with Cherry Cobbler ink over the holly leaves image. I used my oval and scallop oval nesties to cut out the main image and to matt it. I used some cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon and some Chantilly crochet trim to wrap the card and tie a bow. I used my copic marker R39 to color some pearls to match the cherry cobbler paper and ribbon.

I kept this one pretty clean and simple, I do like the vintage feel to that Deck the Halls DS paper.

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.
