Now onto today's Sweet Sunday Sketch... and let me assure you this is a GOODIE!!!
I sat and pondered over this card for ages... well ok DAYS... and FINALLY came up with this:-
Oh and of course for Karen's GORGEOUS sketch:-
Oh I almost forgot... MORE EXCITEMENT... can you handle MORE!!! Of course you can!!!... Karen is giving away some BLOG CANDY this week for the Sketch winner..... sooooo wait no longer... pop on over to her fabulous blog and play along.... it really is FUN.
Now to tell you what I did.... well... I started with some Kraft cardstock and to that added a layer of Baja Breeze which I sponged a little with Choc Chip and then added some Baja Breeze DSP from the Ski Slope pack. I then tackled the Off Centre panel... hmmmm... what to do with that little beauty!!!! Well I opted to make that with some Choc Chip and some more of the gorgeous patterned paper from Ski Slope. I used my Best Yet (Hostess set) for the sentiment (the little square) and stamped that in Old Olive and Real Red with some more sponging in choc chip and added a little Choc Chip Ribbon tag. I stamped the Poinsetta from Seasons of Joy twice once on White cardstock and then on Real Red card and then joined them and the little Old Olive ribbon tag with a Rhinestone brad. I'm still a little uncertain of this little beauty... I'm not sure whether it needs a little something else... but in fear of totally ruining it, I opted for the "less is more" option.... hahaha.
