Here for You...Card Sketch & Color Challenge!

Hello stampers! So excited about this wonderful color combination at Stacey's Curtain Call! She chose: So Saffron, Kraft, Whisper White, Garden Green, and Tempting Turquoise for us to play with this week! I also entered this at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog to use Kraft card stock as a card base! I cut my Kraft card stock to 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4" to create my square card!

Another SWEET Sunday Sketch! Loved this layout and I made my card 4-1/4" Square (a little on the smaller square size) so that it'll still fit into a standard size A2 envelope!

My bird cage is from the Chic Boutique stamp set on page 63 of the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog! This set is quickly becoming one of my favorites because I love using markers to color in the line-art images! Plus the fonts of the sentiments that come with this set are delightful! This set of 7 stamps is a steal for $26.95 and can be ordered On-Line 24/7 by CLICKING HERE!

My Sentiment comes from the Friends 24-7 stamp set on page 100 of the Idea Book & Catalog (abbreviated: IBC). I stamped the 'Here for you' in Tempting Turquoise Ink on Whisper White card stock, punched out with a 1-1/4" Circle punch and layer on top of a 1-3/8" circle punched out of Garden Green card stock! These were adhered to my card with Stampin' Dimensionals for some depth & texture and well, just for fun too! ;)
