Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 164

Good morning!!  It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close in two weeks, next Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time). Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC164 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

WANT TO BE A GUEST Sweet Sunday Stamper?  I'll be picking my favorite card or project after each challenge and that winner will have a special guest spot as a designer on a future Sweet Sunday Challenge.  I'm SO excited about this!  You can enter as many different cards as you'd like before the following Friday deadline, so get stampy!

I will be announcing the next Guest Sweet Sunday Stamper later this week, so be sure to check back to see if you will be joining the design team for SSSC165!

WINNER, WINNER - Chicken Dinner:
Apparently I had lost my head this past week and I completely forgot to pick a winner for the guest stamper spot for this week.  I feel SO horrible about that!  SO....  I'm thinking a free treat for one lucky stamper will remedy that.  Right?

I'll be choosing one random SSSC164 participant, and that lucky crafter will win a $35 gift voucher to My Favorite Things!  Who's on board??   Be sure to link up your project here at the bottom of this post - I'll be choosing the winner from that list, not from the comments.

I used a MFT set for my card today - Ring Me Die-namics & Stamp Set.

This card was fairly quick and easy to put together - all the Die-namics dies did the talking here.  I cut out the telephone in So Happy Together 6x6 papers and then stamped the numbers in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on white cardstock.   I layered the phone over a Square STAX Set 2 Die-namics die and then tucked the Tag, You're It Die-namics die cut underneath.  The flower is made from white cardstock with the Plentiful Petals Die-namics die and I added a Banana Split Button tied with Buttercream Twine.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the curly-q phone cord in Memento Cantaloupe Ink and added the sentiment above it in Memento Tuxedo Black.  Easy peasy!

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have more inspiration for you today - hop on over and see:
