Sweet Sunday Kite

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, SSSC77. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.

This week's sketch is a shape of card that I don't seem to make very often so it was nice to get out of my box, so to speak. My finished card measures 3.25" wide by 6.5" high.

I used my new In the Park set from Taylored Expressions, along with my Summertime Project Pantry for all the papers, ribbon and button. The images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I cut out the kite and the dog then popped them on foam tape for dimension. The image panel seemed a little plain so I pierced around the edges. I used my grass punch on a strip of patterned paper and I think it finishes the little scene nicely. I used my open scallop border punch along the edges of the three bottom layers and stamped the sentiment on the red layer. Gasp...no sewing on this card!!!  :)

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