Sweet Sunday Sketch #22 and a Raspberry Suite Colour Combo

It's Sweet Sunday Sketch time again...YAY... Gosh I love doing these sketches. And this weeks one albeit BEAUTIFUL when I first looked at it I thought I might struggle. But I did indeed enjoy it. So do you want to see the goods.... of course, right?

Oh, I almost forgot... not an uncommon occurance by myself of late!!!! I've combined Karen's fabulous sketch with Dawn's beautiful Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge, again, wasn't too sure how I was going to go with the colour combo...afterall it had BLACK in it.... ooohhh scary sometimes!!!! But again... I think I coped pretty well.

Sooooo... here is my creation, which was actually inspired by this gorgeous card of Dawn's (just adored it the moment I saw it... you know one of those sit there with your mouth open moments!!!...:-

And here is the sketch Karen gave us to work with:-

I used Basic Black textured card as my base then added some Certainly Celery DSP (retired) as my green element, along the bottom and the side. The flourish on Karen's sketch on the left hand side I added to my card by stamping in versamark and then embossed with clear embossing powder. Ooopps almost forgot AGAIN, the flourish is from my Seasons of Joy stamp set...see who said it was just a Christmas set!!! I then cut out a Top Note from the template I got of the SU! Demo Website.... ooohh gotta LOVE being a DEMO!!! and cut it in half and attached to the bottom layer of DSP, then added some Certainly Celery ribbon and a bow with a Very Vanilla Button. Onto the Top Note, I used my flourish again which was stamped in Versamark and clear embossed and the I added a flower from my Cheep Talk set stamped in Certainly Celery and added a Rhinestone Brad to the centre. The sentiment is from the Hostess Set Best Yet and that is stamped in Certainly Celery and added to a Certainly Celery circle scallop.

Hope you like this one, I really enjoyed putting it together.

Stamps:- Seasons of Joy, Best Yet (Hostess), Cheep Talk
