Sweet Sunday Sketch #77

Well, here we are again - Sunday already!! This week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge is a fun one:

I decided to stamp this week and play with some of the new Verve stamps!!


I used the new Blue Skies set to stamp the sentiment and both butterflies in SU's Early Espresso. The color combo includes some of the new SU colors - Daffodil Delight, Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette and my old stand-by Kraft (now called Crumb Cake for some unfathomable reason). I added some Spring Rain stitched ribbon from PTI, with some of the stitching pulled tight to make it ruffly. I also used my all-time fave Verve set, Bountiful Backgrounds to create the white polka dots on the small strip of Kraft along the left side. Seriously LOVE that set - my most used Verve set EVER!!

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!
