It's Your Day

Yes, here I am, post number two for today, sharing a fun little card I worked on over the last week. I've made it for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #200!  She has been and continues to be one of my favorite sketch artists and has a new sketch every other week.  Be sure to visit her blog and check it out.

Here's the sketch:

And here is my card:

A banner was substituted for the oval and then the main focal image mounted on top of it. The image with that super cute lizard is from Tag It.  Using the colors in the designer paper, I chose various markers to color the stamp.

To make the banner I adhered some Sweet Sorbet* designer paper that was slightly larger than the Banner Framelit** to black card stock, to give it enough girth, and then ran it through the Big Shot with the framelit.  I really love the use of black in the new upcoming designer papers both for SAB and the Occasions Spring Catalogue.  Most of the other designs in this particular set use it as just a highlight.

Okay, time to sign off for tonight.  As always, I appreciate your visit.  I may be back with another card tomorrow night, so check back if you have a chance.
