SSSC114.....Just for You

HAPPY EASTER PEEPS!!! It's Sunday which means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample This is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week;

I have to say these are the kinds of sketches that make me cringe. I want layers baby!!! I always struggle with the sketches that have less layering. When I first got the Paisley Patterns DSP, I shied away from the bold prints and used the side of the paper with the small more muted prints, but I decided to go bold with this sketch. I wanted to highlight one of the patterns as the main image. I used bashful blue card stock for my base and then followed with some bravo burgundy card stock. I then added the DSP and a piece of bravo burgundy that was embossed with the square lattice EF. I pulled out my Stampin Up four Frames stamp set and stamped one of the frames with bravo burgundy ink onto some very vanilla card stock. I used the decorative label punch to punch it out. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I added a flower made with the flower fusion die in bashful blue and a couple of little flowers punched with the itty bitty punch pack. I cut a couple of little leaves from the DSP too. The pearls are kaiser silver pearls, (the look gray to me tho) that I had in my stash.

Not my favorite card ever but It'll do! LOL!!

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.
