Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 218-Stuck

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I used this week’s layout for a simple, sweet love themed design.

I used the cactus from the Sweet Stamp Shop Stuck on This stamp set as my focal image. The image was colored with Copic markers and matted on a coordinating piece of green cardstock. I squeezed the “stuck on you” sentiment in at the bottom right corner of the panel and stamped a pair of hearts in the upper left corner. The hearts give the panel a nice, bold pop of color!

For the background panel, I covered a green card base with a piece of green dotted patterned paper. I added a pair of fishtail flag strips to the left side of the panel, then topped them with an angled yellow cardstock panel. I layered the image panel on top over the yellow panel, also on an angle. The angled panels add lots of interest to the card while still keeping the design simple.

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:
