SSSC85 - Operation Birthday

Good morning!  It's Sunday and time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Karen and the Sweet Sunday Stampers have more than just a sketch challenge for you today, we all have a chance to do something special.  This week we would really love for you to play along with the sketch and create a birthday card for Operation Write Home which is a program that is dedicated to collecting cards for our service men and women.  For more details on Operation Write Home and the sketch challenge please be sure to visit Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing

The card I have for the sketch uses the stamp sets Got Treats and Heard from the Heart and the colors for my card are from the Color Throwdown Challenge.

Supplies: Got Treats, Heard from the Heart, Retired DSP, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions folder, Ribbon, Square punches, Scallop border punch, Itty Bitty Shapes punch, Small circle punch, Piercer.  Colors: Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise.
This week's sketch was designed by our Sweet Sunday Guest Stamper Nancy McKinney who is joining us again this week.  Be sure to visit Nancy and each of the Sweet Sunday Stampers below for more samples using this week’s sketch!
