SSSC126 - Merci

Bonjour!  It's Sunday and that means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  I absolutely love Karen's sketch for today, the square for your main image with the border underneath and the large sized banner to the left...loooove it!
 Ever since I saw the inspiration photo (below) on the Moxie Fab World site for the Tuesday Trigger Challenge I haven't been able to get it out of my head.  So today's card is not only for the SSSC#126 but also my second card for the Tuesday Trigger Challenge. 
I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Think Big Favorites #3 along with the MFT rolled roses die, the Taylored Expressions Leafy Branch die and Medium Scallop Border die.  I paired those items with some stitched ribbon, Making Memories designer paper, polka dot embossing folder and some black rhinestones.
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!

Absolutely loved this card the minute I saw it. It has the "WOW" factor, for sure! Love the colours you have chosen and the overall layout. You have inspired me to try something similar.

Love your blog - your cards are so pretty! I have a question about the yellow and black card. Is there a die you use to cut those wide strips that have the "ribbon tail" effect at the bottom? I've been seeing lots of those lately and when they're layered, they're perfect and I know I'd never be able to cut them freehand to look that good!
Thanks!

Rae said...
