Smile...You Know You Want To {SSSC222}!

Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday!

It's time for a new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  This week, we are up to SSSC222!  I used some new MFT goodies on my card, and they will be available on Tuesday, June 10th at 10PM right HERE in the MFT Boutique!

What a FUN sketch!  I've used the new Stripes Cover Up Die-namics, Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics, Blueprints 16 Die-namics and the new Smile set on my card today!  The colors match my blog, which makes me happy!

I cut a panel of Black Licorice Card Stock using the Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics and stamped "SMILE" from Smile using Versamark.  I embossed the sentiment with some Zing! Embossing Powder.  I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock with the new Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and stamped "you know you want to", also from Smile, using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.  I attached a Lemon Drop star, cut from Blueprints 16 Die-namics, as well as a trio of enamel dots.

I used the new Stripes Cover Up Die-namics for the background, cut from Kraft Card Stock.  I then cut out more panels with the Stripes Cover Up Die-namics using Blu Raspberry, Berrylicious and Sno Cone Card Stock, and added just the cut out panels to the Kraft panel, going with an ombre look, light to dark.  LOVE.  I wrapped some Hemp Cord around the left side of the card to try and add in the panel of the sketch, without disturbing the look of the background.

On the inside, I added two more panels and stamped another sentiment from Smile, "being happy takes practice" using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

Here is this week's sketch:
