Sweet Sunday Sketch #37

Hello There.... It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch. What a BEAUTIFUL day we are having here in Perth today... the sun is shining and even the shorts and t-shirts have made an appearance.... unfortunately quite possibly short lived as I believe it is going to be cold and RAINING tomorrow... hmmmm!!!! But never the less we are all going to enjoy the beautiful sunshine while it is here.

Karen has set yet another fabulous sketch for us this week, and all nice and straight too... phew... hahaha.. just kiddin' Karen!!! (waving at ya!!!).
Here is the card I came up with:-

ANd here is our gorgeous sketch:-

At this rate I'm going to have ALL of my Chrissy cards done and ready to post before December even gets here.... I'm quite liking that!!!!

With this card today I started with Choc Chip as the base and added some Ski Slope DSP using the Real Red piece... ( I seriously LOVE this Paper... I think I should get a neat little stash of it!!!)
Then I added another panel of Choc Chip with some of the Striped paper from the same DSP pack. I've been wanting to make my own little christmas tree for ages, and thought this would be the card to give it a whirl on, so I used some Choc Chip and then some of the Old Olive DSP from Ski Slope added some Choc Chip Grosgrain for the trunk and a little Baja Breeze flower from Flower Fusion Too with a Rhinestone Brad on the top. I stamped the flourish from my Season of Joy set in Old Olive underneath and the sentiment is from Best Yet using Choc Chip and Real Red. I used some Baja Breeze Wide Ribbon and some Old Olive Grosgrain just to tie in the colours a little better.

I hope you like this one, and don't forget to check out the other Sweet Sunday Stamper Girls blogs too for some amazingly gorgeous cards:-

And of course don't forget to make your own little creation using this Sweet Sketch and link it with Mr Linky on Karen's Blog.
