Sweet Sunday Sketch

Wow - it's been so long since I took part in a sketch challenge. And ya know, with being snowed in and all, I thought I'd have the chance to get a TON of stamping done. Especially since Andy was here to help with the kiddos. But, guess what I got to spend two days doing instead? TAXES! Oh the joys! Anyone else put off getting their tax stuff together? Eww! and UGH! In the midst of it tho, I decided that I needed a break and whipped up a card for Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch. It felt so good to challenge myself a bit.

This one I'll be putting in my stash for a Graduation Card - I think I'll have a few to go to (and this is the most prepared I've been in YEARS! But, the evolution of this card started with the DSP - and then I just went with it! It's how I start most of my cards - with DSP. How and where do YOU start your cards? What gives you inspiration? I'd love to hear - leave me a comment. I love this paper - unfortunately it's not SU - it's from October Afternoon. But everything else is SU. I die cut the pennant with my Silhouette....sweet Silhouette! The sentiment was die cut with my Big Shot and some nestie dies. While I love my Silhouette - I have to say, it's much quicker to cut something with my Big Shot!!!!

Recipe -
Stamps: Word Play
Paper: Kraft, Not Quite Navy, October Afternoon DSP, Poppy Parade, Kiwi Kiss, Very Vanilla
Ink: SU Markers
