Sweet Stop Sketch 141


Happy Saturday!  This morning my DD and I both woke and decided to find a challenge to do together on speaker phone!  It was so fun!  We both realized  that we talk to ourselves when we are stamping.  We decided on the new sketch at The Sweet Stop.  Here is what it looks like.


Since I had recently obtained a couple of brand new Sweet 'n Sassy, monthly flowers, I was excited to make the February one, #1099,  work in the sketch.  I normally work in an A2 size but due to the size of the Iris, I had to create a 5x7 card.  My papers are an assortment of older scraps that will remain nameless. I stamped with Versafine Ink and embossed with clear detail powder. Coloring was done with Copics and sponging is with Memento Summer Sky, with the background words done in London Fog.  I used an MS border punch for my bottom stripe.  I just had to add the little pearls to make the card look finished.

If you are looking for a fun sketch, run on over to The Sweet Stop and check out the details!  I'm not going to say that is it for today, since we may look for another challenge to do.  Stay warm, and have a fun Saturday!
