Happy Mother's Day! It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. Karen has another great sketch for all of us to create with and we hope you play along.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Happy Hydrangea with the coordinating dies to create a thinking of you card. I used a PTI impressions plate for my background, popped up the square panel and my main image and added a button. You can see from comparing the photo above to the one below that after shooting a few pictures that I added some glitter to that single button, just to give it a bit of sparkle. And boy do I ever miss using Photoshop from my old computer. After switching to a new computer and Windows 8, I lost my Photoshop program and have been trying out a few new photo editing apps, but everything I try leaves my pictures look flat or the colors are off. I guess right now it is what it is.

Hello! Hope you're having a good day. I'm back with another card using this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. This time, along with the SSSC, I decided to use the Fusion Challenge as my inspiration to create a birthday card (love all those bright chevrons in the inspiration photo below). Once I started making my card, I tried stamping chevrons on the bottom portion of my card in yellow but thought it looked too busy so I opted to die cut them and add them as texture for my background.
Supplies: Cupcake Collection, Chevron dies (PTI), Star punch, Colors: Real Red, Summer Sun and Tempting Turquoise.

As far as my card goes for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, I kept it fairly simple. I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Ruby Rose (I just love that set) along with the coordinating dies and the sentiment is from Mini Blooms. The colors are Raspberry Fizz (PTI), Summer Sun, Pink Pirouette and Kiwi Kiss. Karen's thrown me off with this tilty top panel sketch, I kept tilting my head to try and make it look right.
