Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 150


Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close in two weeks, next Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time). Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC150 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

WANT TO BE A GUEST Sweet Sunday Stamper?  I'll be picking my favorite card or project after each challenge and that winner will have a special guest spot as a designer on a future Sweet Sunday Challenge.  I'm SO excited about this!  You can enter as many different cards as you'd like before the following Friday deadline, so get stampy!




I have definitely been in a Valentine's Day card mood lately and so I made another card with this fun, new set from Taylored Expressions called Love Monsters. This little guy looks like a frog to me, so I grabbed this Love Struck paper from We R Memory Keepers and I went with the pink, green, and white color theme for my sweet little frog.  I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Choice Snow White cardstock and then colored him with Copic markers.   The fun heart doily is the new Layering Doily - Medium die and I also used the Fly Your Flag 2 die for the flag underneath the image.  Since the flag wasn't quite long enough to span the length of the bottom layer of paper, I cut it in half and glued it in 2 separate pieces underneath the image.  The 3 little hearts were made with the Hearts a Plenty dies.

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
