SSSC83 - Just Because

Good morning!  It's that fun day of the week, time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  This week we have a guest joining the Sweet Sunday Stampers, the talented Nancy McKinney who also created this weeks sketch.  Welcome Nancy!  This is such a fun sketch for all of us, I just love the large circle and scallops.  For my card I used Extra Large Fancy Flower punch and punched three flowers out of the Newsprint designer paper and used the largest flower from the Boho Blossoms punch and a vintage brad for the center.  I used the stamp sets Elements of Style for the swirl on the upper half of the circle, Notably Ornate for the Just Because sentiment and Tiny Tags for the 4 You.  All of these stamp sets intermix so well together to create a vintage looking card.
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! 

Be sure to visit each of the Sweet Sunday Stampers below for more samples using this week’s sketch!
