Sweet Sunday Sketch #72

It's SUNDAY!!! Which means it's time for one of my VERY FAVOURITE things.... Sweet Sunday Sketch!!!

Once again, Karen has come up with another fabulous sketch to play with and here is my card:-

Here is Karen's sketch:-

As mention in my previous post, I've been on somewhat of a Faux Suede expedition... and this card has not ONE but TWO lots of it. ... I know... I couldn't help myself.

I've used Baja Breeze, Choc Chip, Naturals Ivory and Kraft as my Colour Combo. Starting with Baja Breeze, I then added a layer of Choc chip and some Baja Breeze DSP. The two panels on top are Choc Chip and Kraft, both of which were attacked quite ferociously with my Bone Folder to create the Suede look. I then added one of my Sizzlets Lots of Tags... Label.. I have quite the little stash of these after creating my Convention Swaps... so thought I'd use one of them here.. hahaha.. and that's been sponged with some Choc Ink to soften it up a little bit. The stamp set I used is Party Heart and I've also added a little bit of paper piercing around the two panels.

I think this needed a little something else, but after fiddling with it too much and not like what I did and then having to re-attach the Choc Chip panel, I decided to leave it be. hahaha

Be sure to pop on over and visit the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stamper's for some amazing inspiration:-
And don't forget to link your card to InLInkz over at Karen's blog so we can all see what you've created.
