Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 217-Oh Happy Day

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I used this week’s square layout to make a tiny card that also serves as my entry for the current Lawnscaping mini challenge.

Oh Happy Day card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Lawn FawnMy card measures just 3 ½” square, but has a lot going on! I turned the large round panel into a sun made from a pinking edged circle topped with a yellow dotted patterned paper circle. The “oh happy day” sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Hello Sunshine set was stamped directly on the dotted paper in orange pigment ink.

I adhered the sun to a blue striped panel along with a piece of orange grid patterned paper. For the trio of elements clustered around the edge of the round panel, I went with clouds die cut from shimmery white cardstock. The two smaller clouds are popped up on dimensional dots. I tucked a pair of coordinating fishtail flag strips underneath the card, then added a trio of white sequins around the front of the card for a little sparkle.

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:
