Sweet Sunday Onesies

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC70. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog, The Sweetest Thing.

For my card today I reached for my Hangin' Out set from Taylored Expressions. The sweet little onesie image seemed perfect for the three square elements on the sketch. I stamped the onesie with Memento Tuxedo Black onto three different patterns from My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary then cut them out. I layered them onto a little scallop square of Choice Buttercream followed by a square of Prism frosted pink.

I love love LOVE the flourish element on this sketch and I knew I wanted to use some Zva crystal swirls. I thought I had a bigger swirl in my stash but I could only find the small swirls so I ended up cutting them apart a little and adapting the swirls to fit my vision. Then I added three punched flowers and for the center of each flower I coloured a Crystal Twinkle with a green copic. The sentiment is stamped directly onto the patterned paper and there's another smaller Twinkle in the center of that flower too.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation to Karen's blog. Now let's go see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with for this sketch.
