It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC94. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.
For my card today I ended up combining three challenges. I started with the sketch then paired it with the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club challenge...My Favourite Things, inspired by a song from The Sound of Music. But I have a bit of a shocker for you...I've never seen The Sound of Music!!! Eeeeeeks!!! It's become quite comical actually and every time I tell someone I get the same shocked reaction. I see you...close your mouth... ;-)
But now it's become a little mission of mine...I figure I've gone through 40 years without seeing it, now I'm doing my best to never see it. It's a weird quirk of mine...and frankly I love the shock value! LOL!!! BUT, eventhough I've never seen the movie I do know some of the songs and with this song I was inspired by lines "brown paper packages" and "crisp apple streudels". So I used kraft cardstock for the brown paper packages and my A La Mode What's Cooking? is baking up a batch of crisp apple streudels, just in time for Sunday dinner! Yum!!!
The kraft cardstock part of my card qualifies it for my buddy Jeanie's That's Krafty Thursday challenge #42. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and coloured with copics. I added some red sparkle to her head band and the apron ties then I cut her out. I added detail with some black stitching and I my little open scallop border die-namic. Then I used my scalloped rolled flower dienamic and created the gorgeous blue flower. The patterned papers are from my Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 mini deck.
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 other Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
