Sweet Sunday On My Couch

Today I pulled out a trusty favorite for my Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge card. Karen found this fun layout from the new Stampin Up Idea Book. What a fun sized card, measuring 3 1/4 x 6 1/2 - but of course, with my embellishing, it wouldn't fit inside the envelope. Ugh. That is SO typically me.

The chair has been stamped to a little scrap of Thrift Shop by October Afternoon, and then trimmed out and sponged with my Tea Dye ink. I also stamped the image again to a piece of vanilla cardstock, colored the legs of the chair, and a little bit of shadow for the floor.

Trim was cut out using my MFT Die-namics Jumbo Scallops and a quick bow with MFT's Creme Cotton Twill (I'd link it, but it appears to be out of stock, trust me and grab some as soon as its back, you'll love it!)

Be sure to check out Karen's sample - which I just know will be gorgeous - and please give this fun sketch a whirl. Its a great one!

You'll see samples today from my girlies on the Sweet Sunday Team:

That little paper pieced chair is just the cutest! Love your big scallops and jumbo ribbon (even if it won't fit in an envelope!). It'll just have to be one of those cards you hand to the recipient!
