Sweet Sunday Couch Potato

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC97. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.

For my card today I created something with absolutely no purpose in mind...I made it just because I wanted to! And that, my friends, is a wonderful feeling! I dug into some much neglected Papertrey supplies and created this springy feeling card using Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers. The stamp set is On My Couch and I also used my PTI Rickrack border die and Beautiful Blooms #1 dies. The chair is entirely paper pieced and I added the "potato optional" sentiment directly to the patterned paper. Of course I couldn't create a card without a little sewing too. The finished card measures 3 1/4" x 6 1/2".

We're taking next week off of Sweet Sunday Sketches so I'll see you back here for another fabulous sketch on January 2nd!

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.
