Sweet Sunday Sketch #36

It's Sunday for most of you (still Saturday here on Maui!! hee hee) and that means it's time for another fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge courtesy of the amazing Karen Giron! I was super excited when Karen asked me to join her Sweet Sunday Stampers group to create samples each week using her Sketches!! To celebrate the start of the Sweet Sunday Stampers group, Karen is offering up some pretty awesome blog candy - simply create your own card using the sketch and then use the Mr. Linky thing on Karen's post to share it with the rest of us - and you'll be entered in the Blog Candy giveaway!!

Here's a look at this week's sketch:Man, Karen was REALLY testing me with this one!! I'll admit that sketch and I did NOT get along this week and I started over on more cards and ended up trashing them than I think I ever have before! I finally buckled down to try to make peace with this sketch and I just gave up!! That darn tilted panel did me in!! So, I made him straight!! I'll show Karen to try to force me to use a tilted panel! ha! Here's my sample (I just realized that I think this is the first Stampin' Up Only card I've made in just about FOREVER):

Now, head on over to the other Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with the sketch:

And don't forget to finish up over on Karen's post and link us up to your own creation!!

Paper: Kraft, Whisper White CS (SU)

It's funny and encouraging to hear that you get frustrated too. Hey, Jen. I will be hopping over to get the digital "Halloween kit" from Libby's (sweet shop design) this afternoon and was wondering.... Which digital kit do you recommend I start with at the sweet shop design (other than your Halloween kit)? Something simple and versatile... Again thank you for all your advice.
