Sweet Sketch Wednesday

It's another sweet Wednesday in blogville because today is the day that another Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch is revealed!! We are now up to sketch number 8! Have you been playing along with us? Well if you haven't, it's not too late to jump in and have some fun creating some projects with these great guides!!
Arlana has produced yet another wonderful sketch! Take a look at this one...




This sketch is very versatile and makes that base to a wonderful card that could be created over and over again. Just by changing out your stamps and embellishments, this sketch could be used many times and have a different look each time. In fact, go check out what the rest of the DT has done with this sketch on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and you will see what I mean!
Here is what I decided to do with this week's Sweet Sketch #8...




Monochromatic Hello


I decided to go with a monochromatic theme and to stamp a solid image. I used two Unity stamps for this card. The herb stamp is from the July 09 KOM and the sentiment comes from the April 09 KOM. I used Stampin Up's old olive for my accent cardstock and the ink. To add a little flair I edge punched one of the mats with a Martha Stewart border punch. The flower accent is from Prima and the ribbon source is unknown, but definitely matched my monochromatic color scheme!
I was happy with how this turned out and will be giving this to one of the features from Share A Card as an encouragement card!
Please try and play along when you get the chance. We would love to see what you can do with this sweet sketch! Simply create your card and then head over to the SSW blog to enter a link to the photo of your card into the Mr Linky!
Hope you have a sweet Wednesday and may your bucket overflow with creativity!
