Sweet Sunday Hugs

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC168.

This week's sketch was perfect for a sentiment focal point so I used one of the sayings from Big Greetings from My Favorite Things, along with papers from the Simple Stories Summer Fresh collection. The Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics were perfect for cutting out the three vertical elements.

The little post card is part of the Summer Fresh paper pad and as soon as I saw it I knew it was meant to be the focal point. I stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black and used my copic multiliner to add the "XOXO". And check out the little "hello sunshine" in light blue type in the lower left perfect is that! I used the heart and butterfly shapes from the Notched Tags Die-namics to cut out the three little elements. The hearts were cut from Wild Cherry felt for a little texture. The card base is Kraft card stock layered onto Wild Cherry.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch challenge 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.
