Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 191-I Look up to You

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I used one of my Paper Smooches sets along with an earthy color scheme for my card for the challenge.

I stamped the giraffe from the Zoo Crew set on white cardstock and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers, then cut out the colored image. It’s adhered to a golden yellow panel with dimensional dots. I placed the image so that there’d be plenty of room left on the panel to stamp the “I look up to you” sentiment next to the image. The stamped panel is adhered to a patterned paper panel on top of a pair of die cut fishtail flag strips. I put a trio of enamel dots in the open space to the right of the image, then placed the finished panel on a kraft card base.

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 have created for you this week. Here’s where to find them:
