sweet sunday #54 {fabulous friend}

Happy Sunday!!!! It's time for another fabulous sketch from the lovely Karen... so hope you can play along.

I REALLY enjoyed putting this weeks card together, granted I did have to start it a couple of times but am happy to say I'm VERY happy with the end result. I hope the "FABULOUS" person it's for likes it too and it put a smile on her face!!!

So here is the card I've made for this weeks sketch:-

And here is the sketch for you to see and play along with:-

I've started out with some Pink Pirouette (i know, I know.. MORE PINK!!!) added some Rose Red DSP to that then using my Apron Lace Punch (gee, have I mentioned how much I LOVE that punch!!!) cut some Old Olive. The square panel is Baja Breeze with some Baja Breeze DSP, then I used some of my Felt Fusion flowers.. FINALLY! Am I the only crafter who gets these DELICIOUS goodies then spends the next few months just looking at them in the tins and NOT using them... Please tell me I'm not the only one!!! Ive used a Rose Red flower, layered with Pink Pirouette flower and then finished off with a Choc Chip Button. Oh and the leaves they are one of the Old Olive Felt Fusion flowers just cut to create leaves... see I did use them!!! ;o)

The sentiment is again a combination of MY handwriting for the "fabulous" part and Basic Phrases for the Friend part.

Hope you like this one. Be sure to pop on over and visit the other Sweet Sunday Stampers for some AMAZING inspiraiton, they NEVER fail to inspire:-
