The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #234



Well, we have sad news to announce today - this will be the last sketch challenge!  After many years of running this challenge blog, it is time to close up, with so many other pressing areas to attend to, but we hope you have enjoyed participating!  I certainly have!
So with that said, here is this week's sketch:

and here is my card:
I felt this sketch had a whimsical feel about it (the torn edge perhaps?), so I chose to make a soft, pretty card.  Firstly, I created my background paper again - I used the small poppy flower from the same set as my focal image, the Sweet 'n Sassy clear stamp set 'Poppies and Greetings'.  I first stamped light pink circles all over white cardstock - for this, I used the back of a patterned circle stamp, and then I overstamped the small poppy in a deeper pink ink.  For my image, I stamped the poppies with black memento ink, and coloured them with Copics, then cut the panel out using Spellbinders Curved Rectangles.  I then mounted that onto another Spellbinders die - Decorative Labels Eight.  I found some coordinating small patterned dp from my stash, and tore the bottom edge, as per the sketch.  A little sentiment in the bottom corner completes my card.

Please don't miss the chance to participate this week - check out what the other sugarbabies have created, then join us at the Sweet Stop one last time, to share your projects with us.
Good luck and blessings to all!
