Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 242-You're Awesome

It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  I also have some information about a big sale at one of my favorite online stores, so you'll want to keep reading through to the end of this post . . .  This week's sketch has a nice, big panel that's perfect for your larger images or die cuts.

You're Awesome card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper SmoochesI used the Paper Smooches Spectrum stamp set and matching Spectrum Icons dies for my card.  The unicorn was colored with pale pink markers and adhered to a star patterned paper panel using dimensional dots. I used a die cut sun, stamped on yellow cardstock using orange ink, to represent the sketch's round element.  The set's "you're awesome" sentiment was stamped at the bottom of the panel in black ink.  I matted the panel on aqua cardstock, then adhered it to a turquoise panel on top of a contrasting bright pink cardstock strip.

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:
