Sweet Sketch Wednesday #67

Good Morning!  I can't believe its Wednesday already!  Time for another sweet sketch and a favorite sponsor.  Digi Stamp Boutique is with this week.

So here's the sketch that Arlana has for us to work with....


This is a really fun sketch that is so versatile!  Be sure to visit the Sweet Sketch Wednesday to see the entire line up by the fabulous design team.  Here's my card using Coco Bear.

Edit:  I am getting several comments about the navy or purple.  Does this really look purple or blue?  The dark color used is Chocolate Chip and Brown polka dot paper.

I had fun with this sketch because I also incorporated some great SVG cuts by Penny Duncan and I am pretty sure I got the border from SVG Cuts.  I am really loving my Cricut and SCAL, now that I bought a cutting mat that would hold my card stock.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Summer Sunrise and Lemon Tart (PTI), Chocolate Chip (SU)
Paper:  Polka dot brown (Making Memories), Daisy (Michaels)
Copics:  E34, E37, Y15, Y17, YG63, YG67, YR16, YR61
Tools:  Cricut/SCAL, Frame & Flower (SVGs by Penny Duncan), Border (SVG Cuts.com)
Embellishments:  brad (Basic Grey)

I hope you like the card and that you join us this week!  Be sure to head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday to find out how to play.  Have a great day.

Melissa, this Coco couldn't be any cuter. I just love the colors you used and the fun border with the hearts. I purchased this background paper but haven't used it yet. If just looks so wonderful with the blue. Have a wonderful week!

I just read the comment about the brown polka dot paper. I does look blue to me but I bet it looks fabulous also as brown. It's always interesting what the camera will do. But it is a gorgeous card!
