Sweet Sunday Circles

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, courtesy of Karen Giron. You'll find the sketch on Karen's blog, The Sweetest Thing.
When I first saw this week's sketch, SSSC40, I was a little apprehensive. I definitely thought this one was going to be a challenge for me. But once I thought about it a little, the idea to use the small images from Branching Out Coordinates from Taylored Expressions seemed like a perfect fit for this sketch, so I ran with it.

I wanted to use fall colours so I reached for my September 20th Key Ingredients. I honestly can't stress enough how much I LOVE the Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions...everything is so perfectly coordinated. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed! And if you decide to purchase a monthly subscription, it's a monthly charge so you don't have to put out all the money up front. Ok...enough about the Key Ingredients (but I could go on and on about them...seriously!).

I stamped the pear and apple images with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream then coloured them with copics. I wanted the pear to have a greenish/brown undertone so I used YG91 before colouring it with the two yellow copics. I used my clear Glaze pen on the fruit to make them shine. The fruit are punched out with my 3/4" circle punch then layered onto a 7/8" circle of brown. The chipboard flowers and buttons are from the September 20th Key Ingredients and all I did was colour the flowers with a brown copic before adhering the buttons.

The sentiment is from Branching Out and it's cut out with the smallest size of the Double Ended Tags. I added two bits of bling (also from the September 20th Key Ingredients) to anchor the sentiment. The Buttercream card base has a finished size of 3.25 x 6.5 inches.

Let's go see what the other Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with for this sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!
