Sweet Sunday......Happy

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

It is Sweet Sunday Sketch Day 

Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us today:

I pulled out another fun new set I got from Stampin Up's Occasions Mini, this one called  "So Very Grateful". Another great flower set that makes me Happy, hence the sentiment...You can never have to much Happy which comes from the "Yippee Skippee" stamp set.

I stamped the image onto some white card stock with black stazon and then stamped again onto some scrap. I pulled colors from my DSP. The base of the card is Crisp Cantaloupe and then a layer of Basic Black and then the DSP comes from the "Sweet Sorbet" pack that will be available in the upcoming SAB catalog for free with a 50.00 dollar order!
The colors I used on the flowers are Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party, Pistachio Pudding and Summer Starfruit. I then edged a bit with crumb cake ink. 
I colored the three main flowers again on the scrap piece and cut out and mounted over the the base with some dimesionals. Here is a little close-up of the flowers:

Ain't they sweet???!!!!!

The sentiment was stamped with black and I washed a bit of cantaloupe across the happy. I matted the main piece with more Crisp Cantaloupe  and then my strips are made with Summer Starfruit, Basic Black, and Pool Party card stock and then embossed with another SAB item, "Decorative Dots" Embossing Folder.
I finished off with some basic pearls in different sizes. 

Now lets see what the rest of the team did with this fun sketch

Thanks for stopping by today
