SSSC77 - More Artistic Etchings

Good morning!  It's Sunday and time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Karen has another fun sketch for all of us to play with this week.  My card for the sketch uses one of my favorite new sets from the Stampin' Up Catalog Artistic Etchings. The card base measurements on my card are 3 3/4"x7" so that it fits into a standard letter sized envelope.  I'm really having fun creating cards with a vintage style and can't wait to receive my Stampin' Up order tomorrow so I have more stamps and supplies to play with.

Supplies: Artistic Etchings, Tiny Tags, Vintage Vogue, Newsprint DSP, Ribbon, Small circle punch, Rhinestone Brad, Eyelet border punch, Medium Jewelry Tag punch, Pearls, Dimensionals.  Colors: Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Basic Black.

To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation!

OK, first of all... Stop making me want this set!!!!! You do vintage so well, Lynn. I swear you were born to do it. Absolutely gorgeous card!

Hope your mom has a fun day (and that she doesn't read your blog until after the surprise!).

Have a great week!
