Sweet Sunday Sketch #28

It's Sweet Sunday Sketch time again and the Lovely Karen has set yet another gorgeous sketch for us to play along with.

Here is what I've come up with:-

Here is the lovely sketch:-

The minute, no actually the second I saw the sketch I got a wee bit excited... why? well because look at all those circles, and what better stamp set to use than my LOVELY Circle Circus of course. So of course I obliged with my little happy moment and out it came... Circle Circus.

I'm absolutely somewhat obsessed with using Kraft at the moment... so for those of you that visit regularly I will try to NOT use it in my next creation... TRY being the operative word... haha. So, I started with a base of KRAFT and then added a layer of Very Vanilla and some Regal Rose DSP. To that I added some Choc Chip Grosgrain in both WIDE and Thin and for the smallest circle in the sketch I used one of my ribbon sliders from my Hodgepodge Kit and threaded the ribbon through it. I must admit though the temptation to add a bow somewhere was HUGE, but I resisted temptation and remained on my CAS path. LOL.
I then used the large flower stamp from Circle Circus and stamped it in Regal Rose onto some Very Vanilla card and mounted it onto a Choc Chip Scallop with a little bling in the form of a Rhinestone brad. Then used the "damask" type circle and stamped it in Pink Pirouette before adding the outer circle in Choc Chip. The sentiment is from Basic Phrases and is stamped in Regal Rose.

Hope you like.

Thanks for stopping by and I will HOPEFULLY be back before Sunday with a few more creations. (Little People pending of course... hahaha).

You are the reason I had to get that stamp set, now I just need your brain to go with it! You make the best cards I've seen with these stamps.

I love the way you interpreted the sketch... LOVE it... the little ribbon slide is my favorite...


Rachael Knight said...

That's super cute Sarah! Love how you added the bling in - those ribbon sliders are so yum, I really should use them myself instead of just admiring them in the tin!

Kristina said...

See, if I'd had this set my card wouldn't have taken me two hours, lol. This card looks fantastic! I think this sketch was MEANT to be stamped with Circle Circus... Great job!
