sweet sunday sketch #46

Happy, Happy Sunday!!! Gotta LOVE Sunday's and you've just GOTTA love Karen's gorgeous Sweet Sunday Sketch!!! This week Karen has set us a really FUN one, so be sure to have a play.

Here is my card for this weeks sketch:-

And here is the gorgeous Sketch:-

I REALLY enjoyed working with this one. I thought I'd go with another Chrissy card. I've been BUSY, BUSY, BUSY this past week making all of my Chrissy cards, which I'll post soon, and thought an extra couple of cards wont go a stray that's for sure.

I started out with some Choc Chip and created my own background by using the small Poinsettia stamp from my Season of Joy set. I then added a layer of Real Red and some Ski Slope DSP. Be quick though if you want some of this DELICIOUS DSP because as of Tuesday, you won't be able to get it anymore, so let me know if you need some to finish of those last minute Chrissy cards. I then used my Circle Scissors... LOVING this little toy!!!... and my new 1¾" Circle punch and on the white circle stamped JOY from the large stamp in Season of Joy in Choc Chip then restamped the snowflake in Baja Breeze added a "Glue Dot laiden, Dazzling Diamond plonked" brad to the centre and popped it up on a dimensional. (GOSH... how was that for a mouthful!!!) I also stamped one of the small Poinsettia's from the same large stamp and "dunked" that into some "sparkly fun" and added it just above the 'J'. I also added a touch of sponging around the edges of the circles just to soften them a little and to finish it off some Old Olive Ribbon.

Be sure to pop on over and visit the other Sweet Sunday Stamper's for some gorgeous card samples too:-
