Sweet Sunday Sketch #259 - You Had Me At Chocolate!

Hi Everyone!!!

I have some exciting news to share!! 

I am joining the lovely Sweet Sunday Sketch team! My wonderful friend and amazing stamper Karen Giron created this sketch challenge along time ago and I am so super excited to join her and all of the brilliant designers as we create a project with a brand new sketch every Sunday! YAY!

Today's challenge was to pick one of your favorite sketches from the past and create a card using that particular sketch. The hardest part is that there are SO many fantastic sketches to choose from - you can check out all the awesome Sweet Sunday Sketches here!

For my card today, I picked the SSSC#245 shown above. I love how simple and clean it is and loved the little flags at the bottom. I kept true to the sketch except for using a vertical card base rather than the horizontal and used the new Verve stamp set: Chocolate. I love this new delish stamp set - I still had papers from the card I made yesterday using this stamp set and decided to keep the color scheme the same for today's card :)

I love all the sentiments in this set because I think I have thought them all! I used "You had me at.." stamp set and then stamped the word chocolate twice with different stamps in the different fonts and sizes and then added one more chocolate using the Chocolate Word Die from Verve. 

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Chocolate stamp set from Verve Stamps
Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa and Tuxeddo Black
Cardstock: Sugar Cube (TE),  Cherry Pop (TE), Salt Water Taffy (TE), brown cardstock from Bazzil
Accessories: Chocolate Word Die from Verve Stamps, Silver Enamel dots, corner chomper, stickles, foam dimensional tape, Best Glue Ever

I added some red flags at the bottom for some color popping and then scattered some silver enamel dots for a bit of fun! I loved making this card and can't wait to check out all the wonderful creations from this wonderful design team and which sketches they picked for this week's sketch challenge!!

Please check out all the designers and their creations over at the new Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
