SKETCH 54: All-Occasion Sentiments!

Happy Thursday, my blog friends! :) Today is another sketch challenge day, one of the best days of the month!! I have noticed the large amount of all-occasion and multi-purpose sentiment stamps and rub-ons that are present in my collection, so today we are focusing on using those sentiments to create a fabulous card using a fun sketch! I love how simple I was able to keep mine! I haven't had time for much else lately...and now I can use this card for ANYONE!!

For my card, I started with a white base and simply created a half-circle sun using Summer Sunrise cardstock. I made the sun's ray's using some Seam Binding that I dyed with Tuscan Sun Shimmerz. Seriously, making ribbon that way is the most FUN ever!!! I used the same ribbon to tie around the card into a bow. The patterned paper both above the ribbon and on the SU Build-a-Brad is from the NEW Cosmo Cricket Matilda collection! The star of the show, my sentiment, is from the new Itty Bitty On the Bright Side stamp.


The Deets:
**Use the sketch above and try to incorporate your favorite ALL-OCCASION SENTIMENT(s)!!
**Keyword for SCS upload is LLPC054.
**Post a comment with a link to your card right here on the challenge post by Sunday, August 22, at midnight (or really just before winner is drawn Monday!).
**PRIZE ~ One lucky random winner will receive their choice of any one of the new Cosmo Cricket 6x6 Mini Deck paper pads!!
From here, you will want to hop on over to JenMarie's blog for more fabulousness!!
