Sweet Sunday Sketch #109

Happy Sunday!!!.. It's that time of the week again.!!!. YEP.. it's time for another FABULOUS sketch from Karen!!

I had a challenge this week... a challenge to use a REALLY, REALLY, REALLY scary colour.. one that I haven't until now EVER used... and that colour would be POppy Parade... (VERY SCARY!!!) Although I must admit that now that I have used it, it's probably not quite as terrifying as I first though it was... that doesn't mean though I'll be adding it to my FAVE colour list any time soon.. hahaha.

So.. here is my FIRST ever attempt using Poppy Parade (be gentle people.. Please be gentle!!);-) :-

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

Apart from Poppy Parade, I've used Certainly Celery, Blushing Bride and Baja Breeze... I think it was these colours that made PP workable.. phew!!

The rest of the Sweet Sunday Stamper's have some AMAZING cards to show you too... sooooo... off you go.. go visit them and be INSPIRED:-

And don't forget to link your card to InLInkz over at Karen's blog so we can all see what you've created.

Paper:- Blushing Bride, Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Certainly Celery DSP
Ink:- Poppy Parade, Certainly Celery, Blushing Bride
