Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 248

I am very excited to announce that I was invited to be on the Techno Stamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge Team.  I'm quite honored because Mary Jo Price-Williams saw my work and liked it enough to invite me.  The members of the team are listed at the bottom of this post.  They are a talented group of stampers.

Here's this week's sketch:
I was pretty literal with my card and followed the sketch closely.  The color combination reminded me of summer and 4th of July, which made me think of the fair and Ferris Wheels.  Here's what I came up with:


The stamps are from the Sale-A-Bration set Feeling Sentimental, which can be yours free with a $50 order.  Colors:  Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple. 

The sketch is merely a starting point to jog your creativity.  This week's sketch also inspired the next card.  It is not nearly as literal as the other.  I turned it on its side and replaced the two same colored layers with a ribbon at one end and flowers at the other.  The stamps are from Amazing Family, which is in the new Spring Catalog.
I love how one sketch can inspire so many different ideas.  Why don't you let the sketch inspire you?  Create a card using the sketch and link to it so we can all see your creation.  Never done this before and not sure how?  Just ask and I'll walk you through it.

Hi Sue and what a beautiful card you have made. Looking forward to working with you and all the others on this wonderful team!

I love both cards! I'm always challenged on how to use a large image stamp and you have shard a great sample. Thanks!

I can't believe how fabulous this ferris wheel looks with those colors. Simple stamping looks stunning! Great choice of colors. Your second card is awesome too! So glad to have you as part of the team.

What beautiful cards! I especially love the Ferris wheel! I was looking at the sale-a-Bration brochure on your website and couldn't find this stamp set. Could you lead me to it? I just may need to place an order so I can get this set!

I'm glad you like the cards Tricia. I agree, this is a great set. Unfortunately, this was a SAB offering from last year. I believe I still have a one left. Maybe we can work something out. E-mail me and we can talk: stampin_sue@nc.rr.com
