A new sketch challenge!

Happy Sunday!  I hope you are having a simply fabulous weekend!  I have to say that I am absolutely loving the weather here!  It is simply perfect...bright sunshine, gentle beautiful!  I've been spending my time getting my gardens in shape...they're getting there!
Today marks the beginning of a new sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps.  It is a great one...check it out...

Here is my project for the Design Team...I used more sneak peek products from the new 2015/16 Annual Catalogue:

Birthday card featuring the Sprinkles of Life stamp set...available June 2nd in the new 2015/16 Annual Catalogue

I am so loving the new Sprinkles of Life stamp set and coordinating Tree Builder Punch.  I think I may have mentioned that once or twice before, but it bears repeating.  They are fantastic products AND for every Sprinkles of Life stamp set sold, Stampin' Up! dontates $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities.  This is a set that needs to be at the top of your new catty Wish List :)
For this card I stamped the ice cream cone on Tip Top Taupe card stock (one of the new In-Colours) and then fussy-cut it out.  The scoops of ice cream are stamped on Watermelon Wonder, Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry card stock in the coordinating ink colour.  Each one was punched out with the Tree Builder Punch.  The little cherry on top was stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink on card stock of the same colour and also punched using the Tree Builder punch.

The background DSP is from the new Cherry On Top those little hearts!  I matted the DSP with some Bermuda Bay card stock.  The little pennant element is a piece of Crushed Curry card stock that I embossed using the Decorative Dots TIEF for just a touch of texture.  The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink, punched with the 1-3/4" circle punch and layered on a 2" circle in Watermelon Wonder.  The only embellishment this one needed was a bit of Crushed Curry Baker's Twine.

On the inside I stamped a single candle in Watermelon Wonder and Crushed Curry ink.  The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink.

I had great fun with this sure to check in later in the week for more ideas for how to use it!  In the meantime, give it a go yourself and then be sure to post it over at Sunday Stamps so all of us may marvel at your brilliance!
