Sweet Sunday Sprinkles

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC51. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.

I didn't really do the overlapping thing with my images because I just couldn't bear to cover up any of these yummy looking donuts. I tell ya, I was seriously craving a chocolate glazed donut while I was colouring up these images. Even hubby came into my stamp room while I was working on this card and said the donuts look good enough to eat! LOL!!!


I pulled out my new Sprinkled with Love set from Taylored Expressions for this card. Don't you just love how the sentiment is designed to curve perfectly  over the donut?!? I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured them with copics. I iced the donuts with Espresso Dimensional Pearls (doesn't it look SO yummy and realistic!!!) then added some beads from my stash as sprinkles. The middle donut is also popped on foam tape to make it stand out even more.

I did things a little backwards (well, for me anyway) and did all my image work before choosing any papers. Luckily though my September 20th Key Ingredients are a pretty good match. I used my apron lace punch on a strip of Suede Brown Dark then did a little zig zag stitching for interest. At first I just had a strip of ribbon going across the card but it looked so plain...it was crying out for a little something so I whipped up a quick little bow with my Bow Easy and tied on a coordinating button.

Sheesh...I really must stop looking at this card...I'm craving another donut just from typing up this post (and I'm not even a donut fan)! You'll want to pop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers to see what they came up with for this week's sketch.
