Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 296-You Make My Life Brighter

It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I used the Paper Smooches Giddy Bugs stamp set for this cheery design based on the sketch.

You Make My Life Brighter card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Paper SmoochesI colored the set's firefly image with Copic markers, then cut it out.  It was adhered to a pale yellow stitched circle die cut using foam tape. I stamped the set's "you make my life brighter" sentiment on the circle in black ink.

The circle was adhered to a yellow striped patterned paper panel over a strip of shiny silver paper.  I added a small pale yellow fishtail flag banner at the top right of the panel.  It seemed a bit plain, so I
attached two brads to the banner--much better!  The finished panel was adhered to a pale yellow card base.

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on the SSSC blog.  Be sure to stop by the blog to check out what the SSSC team has created using the sketch.  And, don't forget to check in on Wednesday to see one of our favorite cards made with the sketch!
