Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 259-My Heart Stops When You Look at Me

It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  You'll notice a few changes in the challenge this week. First off, we have a new home.  You can find the sketch and all of the design team samples here:  Sweet Sunday Sketch.  We're also thrilled to be welcoming some new and super talented members to the team.  Be sure to stop by the blog to meet them.

For this week's challenge, we're inviting you to go back to our sketch archives (you can find them HERE) and pick a favorite sketch from the past and make a new card using the sketch.  I used SSSC 212.  You can see my original take on the sketch here.

My Heart Stops When You Look at Me card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite ThingsFor this version, I used stamps and dies from My Favorite Things.  I built my design on a piece of blue dotted patterned paper.  After adhering a strip of red cardstock along the left edge of the patterned paper panel, I added a cream strip near the bottom of the panel.  A sentiment from the Geek Is Chic set was stamped on the panel in gray pigment ink.  I due cut a pair of funky cat's eye glasses from a scrap of gray cardstock.  It doesn't show well in the photo, but I added acetate "lenses" to the glasses for a glass-like look.  I used foam tape to adhere the glasses to the top of the sentiment panel along with a shiny silver heart.  The finished panel was adhered to a cream card base.

To play along, just pick your favorite sketch from the past, make a card, and link it up on the new SSSC blog.  On Wednesday, we'll be featuring a few of our favorites on the blog, so be sure to stop back then.
