A SWEET SUNDAY GOOD EGG

Karen came up with an "interesting" sketch this week, didn't she?! I did find that it wasn't as intimidating as it first appeared. In fact, I can see alot of possibilities with those five background panels! For my card, I chose to flip the sketch and use Soft Subtles + Groovy Guava Prints Designer Paper for the panels. I felt like I was cheating by adding the spaces between the panels but I had to remember that a sketch is meant to inspire, not take literally.

I hope you'll consider playing along with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #57 too! You can find more inspiration from the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers ...

I love your interpretation of the design. I looked at the others and found only one other I liked probably because I am a crazy quilter too. It was Karen Motz's sweet swinging sunday card.

thanks for inspiring me so much. I saved to case it.
