SSSC104 - Life is a Matter of Moments

 It's time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSSC104), Karen has another fantastic sketch for all of us to try out this week and we hope you'll play along!  The card that I created using this weeks sketch is Stampin' Up only (SUO) and has a vintage look, I used the stamp sets Elements of Style and Tiny Tags.  I'm also entering this card in a few other challenges, the Colour Queen Color Challenge, Play Date Cafe Color Challenge and the Pals Paper Arts Challenge which was to create a card with a vintage look.

 The main image was stamped in Crumb Cake, then I used my aqua brush and water colored in some Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose ink, then add some Dazzling Diamonds glitter on each of the roses (you can click on the photo for a close up view).  I love this image of the roses, it reminds me of the large English climbing roses I use to grow at our first house.
This is a close up of the paper rose, I used extra large five petaled flower punch and layered three Pink Pirouette flowers together after crumpling them up.  Then I sponged them with Crumb Cake along the edges and sponged Regal Rose in the center before adding a vintage brad.

Aren't these pictures of the color inspiration from both the Play Date Cafe and the Color Queen beautiful?

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!

LYNN!!!! OMG...this is freaking amazing!!! Where to start...I LOVE the torn/bent corner with the pearls behind. I LOVE the layered flower. I LOVE all the distressed/inked edges. I LOVE the pleated ribbon layer. I LOVE how you watercoloured the image. I LOVE this card and it's shabby chic feel.
