Be Happy - SSSC #260


Hi, everyone, it’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Do you love our new blog?? We sure do and it seems you do, too! Thank you for all the sweet comments--we were so excited to see all the entries last week and can’t wait to see what you create this week with this awesome sketch!

My card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then I added a layer of background paper I made with Harlequin Stencil, Tickled Pink dye ink, Sour Apple dye ink, Delicata Silver pigment ink, and a dark gray fine point marker. I matted it with silver glitter paper and popped it up on foam. Next is a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Sheet Music Background and Black Licorice dye ink, then more Sweet Tooth card stock this time embossed with MPD Scallops Stencil and white embossing paste. I added a sentiment, part from Totally Happy, heat embossed using Sweet Tooth pigment ink and clear detail embossing powder and the rest from Happy Trio Die-namics. To create this, I cut four layers from Grout Gray card stock and one from Ranger Silver Foil card stock and adhered them all together for dimension. I added a Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics cut from Sour Apple card stock and a Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose Die-namics cut from Tickled Pink card stock with some glitter added to the petal edges. I finished off with some enamel dots and clear gems.

Another sentiment from Totally Happy was stamped on the inside.


And that’s it from me today! Hope to see you over at the new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge blog, playing along! Thanks for stopping by—see you soon, and remember, it’s all about the art!
