Sweet Sunday on a Monday - Thank You

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Between dog training and the boys sports we had a very busy one here.  Since I'm not a football fan I was able to sneak away to work on a card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge.

When I first peeked at the sketch I knew I wanted to do a few things.  The first thing I knew I wanted to do was to pair Spearmint and Navy.  I lived in this color combination last summer, I just love these colors together.

The second thing I wanted to do was to use my Circle Die-namics to cut a window through my card front instead of layering a circle on top.  I cut the first window from my Primitive White card stock. Then I cut circle two sizes smaller from Nightshift Blue card stock and layered it behind.  The windows are popped up on top of the Polka Dot Cover-Up.

The Banner Greetings stamp set  has a sentiment for just about any occasion, and of course pairs perfectly with the Banner Greetings Die-namics. I added a little embellishment with my Pretty Posies Die-namics and a set of Spearmint Royal Leaves.  I added a little pop of color with Tangy Orange card stock.

Do you see how gorgeous the Nightshift Blue ink is.  Why haven't I used this a gazillion times? I don't know... but I know I plan to! 

Here's this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch, be sure to add your version to Karen's link up widget.
