A Spoonful of Sugar Sketch

Good Morning,

Hope you're Tuesday is off to a good start. I've had a crazy morning here, I'll spare you the details, but here's hoping things improve rather quickly or I may just go back to bed! Ever have one of THOSE mornings? Ahhhhh!

So I have a card to share today, which I created for this week's A Spoonful of Sugar challenge. The challenge this week is a fun sketch sketch designed by DT member Lim. Whimsy Stamps is also the sponsor for this challenge! Head on over and check things out, the DT samples are fabulous!

Seeing as it is Spring, even though it doesn't really feel like it around here, I wanted to go with some light pastel colors for my palette on this card. I used the SAB designer paper from SU! and paired it with some Barely Banana, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery SU! card stock. The image is Whimsy Frog and he's been colored with Copics then cut out and mounted on the embossed blue piece. The embossing was done with the bubbles folder from Cuttlebug. I added some grosgrain ribbon as the different layers of the sketch and each layer also includes some silver brads. The final accents are some Prima flowers with button centers. The sentiment is from Whimsy also.

Thanks for popping over today. Hope you have a great day! It's suppose to be warmer today, emphasis on suppose, so maybe we'll get a chance to go outside! One can dream, right?!

Happy Stamping!! :)
