Card Sketch Challenge SC266

I was starting to feel like I used a lot of the same type of card layouts so I decided to participate in Splitcoaststampers weekly Card Sketch.  It was a lot of fun finding pieces to fit the sketch.  I limited myself to only paper from the Sunshine Garden kit from last year's SU! catalog.  I still have quite a few stickers and a little paper left.  These soft colors are favorites.

The stamped image is from All Holidays and is one of the few large word images I have.  Need to keep that in mind when I'm shopping for stamps.  I used Earth Elements markers to color in the words and added the flowers from an Autumn Leaves set.

The final touch was rounding the corners with my new We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.  I've been debating this for awhile.  I have their Crop-a-dile and it is terrific for setting grommets and punching holes in thick material.  However, the handles are wide set and tough on my hands.  The handles on the Corner Chomper are closer together.  As long as I don't go chomping through dozens of corners at once, I think it will be fine.

Ingredients:  Stamps:  All Holidays from SU!; Flowers by Autumn Leaves
Ink:  Old Olive, Creamy Caramel, Not Quite Navy
DSP and stickers from:  Sunshine Garden Simply Scrappin' kit
