Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 171

***Scroll down to the post below or click here to see my Clear and Simple Stamps Release in Review post.***

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Karen’s created a square sketch us to try this week.  I pulled out a pair of stamp sets from Market Street Stamps for my take on the sketch.

I used the telephone image from the  Teacher Notes set as my focal image. The phone is colored with Copic markers and cut out, then adhered to the panel with dimensional dots. I used a piece of twine for the phone cord, twisting it a bit before gluing it in place. The keypad’s covered with a coating of Glossy Accents for a raised appearance. I stamped the “call me” sentiment from the Great Big Greetings set in green ink right under the phone.  By the way, if you're a Market Street Stamps fan like I am, be sure to check out this weekend's Black Friday special at i {heart} papers . . .

I used two different patterned papers from the Pebbles Seen & Noted paper pad for the panels on my card. A strip of light blue striped twill dresses up the green dotted panel.

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on Karen’s blog. For lots of inspiration be sure to check out what the other Sweet Sunday Sketch stampers and our special guest stamper, Pam Sparks, have created for you this week. Here’s where to find them:
