Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 249

Good morning!!  It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Want to play along?  Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC249 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

This will be our last sketch for 2014 so we can take time to relax and spend time with family during the Holidays. The SSSC will return January 4th.

This week we have another tilted panel stowed away inside the sketch - it's a love/hate relationship with a lot of stampers, so with that in mind, I hope you'll give it a try.  I'm using this lovely coordinating Ornament Banner stamp and Die-namics for my card today.  You don't need to use ornaments for your card, any element will do the job.

I cut out the Ornament Banner in Smooth White card stock and then stamped the ornaments in random colors.  I cut out the little paper strip for the banner in Aubrey Blue card stock and then popped the whole thing up over the entire card front.  For a little sparkle, I added a few Shine Bright sequins along the different layers and then added my sentiment in Electric Red ink.

I hope you enjoyed this week's sketch and I'd love to see what you create!  Please hop on over to see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have whipped up for you today:
