The Sweet Stop

Sweet 'n Sassy has a brand new challenge blog and it very aptly called "The Sweet Stop". Every week will bring a new sketch to challenge and inspire you and every 3rd week there will be a lovely prize.

Today I am showing you the card I made following the sketch. I have used Sweet 'n Sassy's Elegant Blessings set. I have used the larger of the two filigree crosses that come in the set. I wanted to create something very elegant and decided to use black & white and this lovely light pink. The cross was stamped with versafine black ink and then I cut it out with my oval nestibilities and also cut out a matching scalloped layer in black. The top panel was embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder and I created the border on my black frame with a Martha Stewart punch. The felt ribbon along the bottom is by Making Memories and the pink polka dot and sheer ribbon are both by May Arts. To finish off, I added a few K&CO Adhesive Pearls to accent the cross and create a little more balance in the bottom corner.


I hope you will get the chance to play along. It is really a beautiful sketch. You can also upload to galleries using the code SSS01.
Don't forget that the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog Hop starts today! You start here and then just keep on hopping.....it will be my turn tomorrow and I have a really FUN summer card to show you!
