Sweet Sunday Sketch #41

Happy Sunday!!!!
WOW!!! What a weekend. Yesterday was the Perth Stampin' Up! Regional Training Event. And... it was SOOOOOOOOO much fun. I really had a ball. Getting to meet up with some amazingly wonderful, gorgeous and EXTREMELY talented ladies (*waving Lee and Sarah... oooh and Sarah's Mum and Aunty Mary (who I finally got to meet... that was exciting too!!!) We got to make some GORGEOUS projects, which I'll share with you soon I promise... you'll just have to wait until the NEW Mini comes out.. not long to go now, but let me assure you, YOU wont be disappointed!!!!

And today... SUNDAY... and another FABULOUS Sweet Sunday Sketch. Karen has set another BEAUTIFUL sketch for us this week.

Here is my card:-

And here is our sketch:-

I LOVE making Christmas cards, and I especially LOVE making them a little differently using PINK!!!! I know I'd LOVE to receive a PINK Chrissy Card... How about you... would you LOVE a Pink Chrissy Card?

I started out with some Kraft cardstock and to that layered some Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze DSP from my Ski Slope pack. Then added another layer using Close to Cocoa and Kraft again this time creating my own background using my Season of Joy set and stamping the images in Versamark. The main image is stamped on Whisper White in Pink Pirouette. I re-stamped the small poinsettia in Regal Rose and added a little bling with Dazzling Diamonds. I also re-stamped the little snow flake in Baja Breeze and mounted that with some dimensionals.. oh and lets not forget about the other little bit of bling in the form of a pink rhinestone in the word 'season' ... did you see it? Rather than add circle to the top I used my creative license and added a Pink Pirouette bow. I don't think Karen will mind!! :o) (*smiling and waving Karen*)

Be sure to pop on over to the other Sweet Sunday Stamper gals blogs for some more amazing inspiration:-

Jen and Nancy unfortunately can't play this week, but be sure to pay them a visit and say HI. Oh and be sure to wish Lynn a HAPPY BIRTHDAY too. Happy Birthday Lynn (for yesterday).

Oh and most importantly, be sure to link your own creation to "Miss" Simply Linked (I'm calling her Miss, because hopefully she behave better than Mr Linky!!!) on Karen's blog so we can all see what you've created.

THanks so much for stopping by.
