Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #160

Well, here we are again - time for another fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! This week is a really fun sketch - check it out:


Sadly, this is my final week as a member of the Sweet Sunday Stampers Design Team. With Summer Break in full swing, several home improvement projects on the horizon, and feeling like I just need to take another little step back from so much time spent in my craft room - it's time to let a few things go. I've been on this team since September of 2009 and it's really hard for me to leave. I consider each of these DT girls a close friend - they've seen me through some pretty serious ups and down in my life and we've had some HILARIOUS e-mail exchanges. I'm going to miss those crazy e-mails! Anyway, enough blah blah about all that. Let's move on to my final sample card (and then I'm going to take a trip down memory lane and share 5 of my favorite-ist Sweet Sunday Sketch cards with you at the end of this post)...

Yep, it's another no-stamping hybrid card and you're right. I got a little scrap-happy again with the over-embellished vibe. I used the new Play Ball Like a Girl digi kit by Libby Pritchett (Sweet Shoppe) for all of the paper and those fun digital elements and I added all kinds of extra crap. It's so unlike me. I can't seem to stop using those wood veneer stars from Studio Calico, and well I guess that pom pom trim is totally like me, and for some reason I tried to do some glitter splatter again, but I just can't seem to get that right. How do people do that splattered look? Anyway, I think the card as a whole works. I added a few extra layers that aren't on the sketch but overall I think the sketch is there.

Be sure to stop by the other Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs to see what they've done with the sketch:

AND...we have another fabulous Guest Sweet Sunday Stamper, Tracy Clemente! Be sure to stop by and see what she's created with this week's sketch too!

Then play along with us and post your own creation using InLinkz over on today's post on Karen's Blog!

And now, just because I'm feeling all sentimental, here's a look at 5 of my favorite cards I ever created for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (and no, I'm not including links to the sketch. This post is already late enough as it is. You'll just have to figure that out for yourself. Or, if you really want to know, e-mail me and I'll figure it out for you). 



And that's it. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I love your over-embellished cards! Love this digi kit (Libby rocks) and I'll miss your snarky posts. And what, no favorite tilted panel cards? I'm shocked!
