Sweet Sunday Sketch #100

Happy Sunday!!!.. It's time of course for another FABULOUS sketch from the gorgeous Karen. Today... well TODAY is Sweet Sunday Sketch #100... yep.. 100... do i hear whistles going, drums banging and see streamers exploding!!!!.. How fun!!!

Ok.. I'll calm down now.. but just a little. Today, Karen has of course given us another amazing sketch to work with.. I will admit to struggling a little with this one... but I blame that soley on ME and not the amazing Sketch ... haha...

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

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

I've used my Aviary stamp set for this one... It's such a beautiful set.. don't you think? The colour combo.. given I was struggling.. is my GO TO combo of Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, Vanilla and a touch of Riding Hood Red thrown in for good measure.. oh let's not forget the Chocolate.. there is Chocolate on there too.. haha.

I stamped the cage in Choc Chip Ink and then the cute owl in Pink Pirouette.. he is there.. I promise.. perhaps I should've gone a shade darker so as to not cause multiple eye strains!!!... oops.

To add a little oomph.. i added some Pearls to the top of the cage and also just to finish the whole thing off around the circle. Oh... oh.. and also a little glimmer by the form of some Dazzling Diamonds around the Chocolate border of the main image panel.

A little sad news today too.... Today is going to be the Lovely Laura's last day with the Sweet Sunday Stampers.... *Sniff*  I've loved working along side Laura.. her cards, her style, and HER.. always amazing, gorgeous and inspiring. Be sure to pop on over and give her LOTS of love today... she will be missed!!
