Sweet Sunday Coffee

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC167.

I adore this sketch with the fabulous circle element and the vertical flag. I definitely think I'll be reaching for this sketch over and over.

I used the new Clearly Sentimental about Coffee set from My Favorite Things, paired with patterned papers from the Echo Park Sweet Day collection. I'm loving the fresh shades and colours in this pack! I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black and added a piece of patterned paper before cutting it out with the Circle 1 STAX Die-namics. I used the Circle 2 STAX Die-namics to cut out the Steel Grey layer then stitched them together. I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics to cut out the burlap flag and the Small Scallop Border Die-namics was perfect for the horizontal accent. I love how the papers pop on the Orange Fizz background.

The flower was cut out using the new Flower Medley Die-namics and I topped it with an Orange Fizz button tied with Hemp Cord.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
