Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

Are you ready for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch? I was so excited when Karen Giron asked me to be part of her Sweet Sunday Stampers to create a card showcasing her weekly sketch...fun, fun, FUN! I love playing along with her sketches whenever possible anyway, so this was right up my alley!
You can find this week's sketch, SSSC36, on Karen Giron's blog, The Sweetest Thing. She's also giving away some blog candy to celebrate the new Sweet Sunday Stampers so be sure to pop over and see! I've had this card under wraps pretty much all week, just waiting to show it off. It's doubling as my Christmas card of the week too.

I used a fun Unity set called Jolly Little Winter. I thought the little penguin was perfect for the square element on the card. I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured him with copics. I used my square Nestabilities to cut him out. Also, I popped the penguin and the fish for dimension then added some diamond dust to look like sparkly ice.

The patterned paper is by Pebbles Inc. I used my swiss dots Cuttlebug folder to jazz up some solid blue then layered it onto not quite navy, then onto the white card base. I love using ghost snowflakes, and I layered this one with circles of blue and kiwi, then added a platinum Bella dot to the center. This is one of those cards that just makes me happy to look at! :)

I'm off to see what the other Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with for this sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
