Sweet Sunday Hugs

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSS92. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.

I was very excited when I saw this layout because right away I knew I'd be using my lacey squares Nestabilities (for the first time...). Woo Hoo!!! LOVE them!!! Wait, I'm getting ahead of myself...I'll start at the beginning of the card.

I looked through my stash of MFT stamps (newly rearranged and organized by my BFF Dana while she was here visiting...thanks Day!) and decided to use Bunch of Blooms from the Pure Innocence line. She's so adorable holding the little bouquet of flowers and I know just the person I'm going to send this to...someone who needs a little something to make them smile these days. I stamped the PI girls with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured her with copics. I added sparkle with pink and red spica glitter pens then adhered a few crystal Twinkles. The patterned paper is from my Basic Grey Urban Pairie 6x6 pad...I still love this paper but it was at the bottom of the pile and I'd forgotten about it. My paper's all been rearranged though (thanks again to Dana...isn't she THE best!?!).

I used my jumbo scallop die-namic on some intense kiwi then pleated yellow satin ribbon overtop. The flower accent is a combination of felt and cardstock cut out with the flower trio die-namic. I deviated a little from the sketch with the green strip but I'd already sewn together the pink and lacey Nesties layers before I realized the horizontal strip was supposed to be between them...doh!

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.
