Sweet Sunday Sketch #39

Happy Sunday!!!! Hope you've been enjoying your weekend. We've had a lovely weekend. Lastnight I went to the John Farnham concert with my Mum.... WOW... it was AWESOME... YES I am a PROUD John Farnham fan!! :o)

The lovely Karen has set an AWESOME sketch for us this week... I REALLY, REALLY enjoyed working with this one, and will definately be using it again... SO much fun.

Here is my card:-

And here is the wonderful sketch:-

Cool huh?.

When I first saw it I had a "minor" panic attack (Please don't panic Karen... waving!!!) only because I didn't have ANY oval templates... I KNOW... *GASP*... but you may have noticed I said 'didn't' ... because... I went out and got me a little template sheet so that can cut a proper oval as opposed to attempting to create one with random object on my craft desk...hahaha... albeit amusing to picture it... I've opted for simplicity this time... hahahah.

I chose one of my FAVOURITE colour combos for this week, Choc Chip, Regal Rose (well any PINK for that matter), Certainly Celery and of course KRAFT!!!.

I created my own background on the Regal Rose using the little flower from Cheep Talk stamped in Regal Rose then used my White Gel pen to brighten up the centres. The bottom layer, I stamped the little heart from Cheep Talk in Certainly Celery. I stamped the large flower from Cheep talk in Regal Rose, stamped off once onto Vanilla card and added a Pink Rhinestone to the centre then stamped my sentiment from Best Yet in Choc Chip. The edges of the Vanilla oval and the Kraft section have been sponged in Choc Chip to add a little dimension. Oh and the scallop edge around my Oval was created by using my Scallop Oval punch... I haven't got a LARGE scallop (Oval) template just yet.... on my wish list hahahha, so had to get a little bit creative with that bit. ;o)
Oh and I mustn't forget the CHoc Chip Ribbon just to finish it all off.

Hope you like this one, and be sure to pop on over to the other Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs for some more AMAZING inspiration:-

And don't forget to have a little play too... all you need to do is create a card using the sketch as your guide then leave a link to your card on Mr Linky on Karen's Blog for us all to see. FUN!!!!
