Sweet Sunday Sketch #260 - Congratulations!

HI Everyone!

Happy Sunday! There is a brand new sketch (#260 to be exact) over at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Blog to play along with! So stay in your jammies and craft away this sunday (or anyday! :) 

This is such a fun sketch - with this TILTED panel that just adds a bit of fun! I used the new stamp set from Taylored Expressions called Carried Away Stamp and Die Combo for this sketch - love these fun die cut balloons carrying away a bicycle built for two! 

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Carried Away stamp and die combo from Taylored Expressions
Inks: Distress inks: Broken Glass, Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers: Build A Scene paperpack from TE, Sugar Cube cardstock (TE), Salt Water Taffy cardstock (TE), Cork Paper (TE)
Accessories: Cloud Border die (TE), sponge dauber, corner chomper, Best Glue Ever, Liquid Pearls, copic, stickles, foam dimensional tape

I stamped the bicycle image and then did some fussy cutting which I love to cut out the white spaces in this stamped image and then die cut the balloons in different colors and added them to the balloon strings. The background was sponged and the die cut clouds added to the top and bottom of the image panel are from using the Cloud Border die. The tilted element from the sketch is from cork paper that I dotted with some liquid pearls. I know that the little flags on one end aren't in the sketch - but somehow I felt like this card needed a little something on that side :) - 

Can't wait to see what all the ladies have created with this sketch - please hop over to the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog to check them out - and we would love it if you would play along!

Big hugs,
Sankari :)

One day would you do a "HOW TO" on your clouds....?
