FOR ALL YOU DO on SWEET SUNDAY

This week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #77 is straight out of the new Stampin' Up! catalog (US) on pg. 10. It's unique size (6 1/2" x 3 1/4") and layers made it really fun to work with! I hope you'll play along this week too!

For more inspiration, see what the Sweet Sunday Stampers have created:

Joanne Basile:...just a little something
Karen Motz: Paper Playhouse
Laura Fredrickson: Scrapnextras
Sarah-Jane Kale': Janeybell

Lynn Put: The Queen's Scene
Jen Tapler: Jen Tapler Designs

My card uses the stamp set, For All You Do which is not new to the new catalog, but is new to me. I earned it for free with my Sale-a-Bration rewards! Sweet! I used colors from Just Add Ink Color Challenge #25 of Rose Red, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, and Elegant Eggplant.
