Sweet Sketch Wednesday with Clear Dollar Stamps


As soon as I saw the sketch this morning at Sweet Sketch Wednesday I knew what I wanted to do. I had printed out this image called "Fall Floral Jug" last week , which is a freebie that I got last fall from Clear Dollar Stamps and cut it out with my Spellbinders peony die. I used some K&Co dp from their "Julianne" collection and the lace is some that I bought with my gift certificate from McMahon Five. This sentiment is in the same set as the jug, I just placed it slightly over the jug before printing. My coloring was done with prismas and oms and then chalked around the base to ground it. Thanks Nancy for the lovely flower and rhinestones on my card, these were from some blog candy that I won from her on the last hop at SSW.



Be sure and take a look, I know you will love this challenge site as much as I do, and plus you will pick up a great stash of sketches. I want to thank the gals at SSW for picking my card last week to be one of their top 3. I am so honored and pleased. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

Thanks to all of you for stopping by for a visit. Hope you can come back soon.

Gorgeous Patti! I love the jug image off center in the peony die cut - adds such interest and the peony die was the perfect choice for your card. This is so rich looking and with vintage feel which I love. Thanks for playing along and sharing your talent with us at Sweet sketch Wednesday!
