SSSC133 - Lighten Up

It's time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #133.  Karen has another fun sketch for all of us to create with this week and we hope you'll take the time to play along.

For my card I used the There She Goes stamp set Lighten Up and decide to go with a square 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card.  I paper pieced the lamp shade and used my Copic markers to color in the leaves around the rose on the shade and the lamp base.  This was a fun card to put together.  I was inspired by the little spiral rose on the lamp shade and then remembered I had the designer paper with a spiral roses printed on it and added the die cut roses to repeat my theme.

Supplies: Lighten Up - TSG, MME dp, Copics, Nestie dies, Scallop border die, Spiral Rose die - MFT, Ribbon, Pearls.  Colors: Not quite navy, Night of navy, More mustard.
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!
