Sweet Sunday Sketch #70

Happy Sunday! You know what that means - Sweet Sunday Sketch time!! I'm a few hours late with my post. Oops! Like that's never happened before. Ha! We've just had a crazy busy weekend and I totally forgot to schedule my post. My card's been done and just as I was about to head to bed I was like "Oh Crap! My Sweet Sunday Post!". So here I am...

When I saw the flourish-y thing on the sketch I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do. And this is SO out of character for me. I mean, this card took like 2 hours to make. ugh. But I must admit I love it.


That flourish is HAND CUT! It's a printed digi image from the Desmond & Molly Jones kit by Libby Weifenbach (Sweet Shoppe). Isn't it yummy? I resized it in Photoshop Elements, printed it out and used my hobby knife to cut it out. Then I used a bunch of neglected PTI stamps - Background Basics Text Style, Say It With Style, and the leaf is from In Bloom.

Oh, you wanna see the sketch? OK. Here it is...


Be sure to check out the other Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with the sketch:
Then play along with us and post your own creation using InLinkz over on today's post on Karen's Blog!

Hey! All my cards take 2 hours! It doesn't surprise me that you hand cut that flourish (which is BEAUTIFUL), but I'm not sure that you really made that card! I got to spend a little bit of time with Sarah this past week. I'm feelin' a Maui craft day is needed real soon. Love you!
