Sweet Sunday Sketch #50

Merry Christmas!!!! I hope you all had a fabulous day celebrating with your loved ones and of course enjoyed a little pressie or two from Santa.

The lovely Karen, even through the Christmas madness, has managed to give us a GORGEOUS sketch to play with this week. I had fun with this one... and it gave me an excuse to use my BRAND NEW just out of the packed "Apron Lace Punch"....ooooohhhhh... it's a BIT nice isn't it!!!!

Oki.... here is my card for this week:-

And here is Karen's sketch:-

I've used one of my fave combos, Vanilla, Cocoa and PINK..... ooohhh look here.. no KRAFT, not even an speckle of it... goodness, perhaps I've had too much Christmas goodness.. hahaha.

I started out with Vanilla as my base then added some Cocoa cardstock which was the first piece of card cut using my NEW punch (can you tell I was a little excited about getting this one!!!) to that I added some of my delicious EXTRA WIDE Pink Pirouette ribbon and then a little more pink in the form of Regal Rose Wide Grosgrain. The main image is stamped on Vanilla and I've used my new Butterfly Prints for this one. The Butterfly is stamped in Regal Rose and then punched out using my NEW Butterfly punch, I then softened it just a tad by sponging some cocoa around the edges (cocoa in the ink form not the chocolate drink form.. which would've been quite possible given I'd just made some Bailey's Chocolate Balls before hand!! hahaha) I then stamped the sentiment from the same set using my Regal Rose marker I coloured in the LOVE then used my Cocoa inkpad for the rest of it. The Butterfly is popped up on some dimensionals and a I added a little bit of PINK bling to her too.

So there you go. Be sure to pop on over to the other Sweet Sunday Stampers, wish them a MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS and see what amazing creations they've come up with too:-

and of course KAREN GIRON

Super cute, I sooooo need to get me an apron lace punch!!! Fabulus job with the sketch!

Kristen said...

I really like the gem for the butterfly's body, that is a really neat look that I may have to croppy-cat! What a really pretty card!

Fiona Harrison said...

Just lovely. I do like those colours & I really like the cocoa sponging (had to laugh at the 'not the drink variety' comment), makes good use of the space left around the image by the punch.
Hope you had a lovely Christmas,

So Sweet!!... It just beautiful. I love that colour combo... actually anything pink is always a favourite - it must have something to do with being a mum to girls!
