Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #206 Sponsor DigiStamp Boutique

 Good morning and welcome to another wonderful
 Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Congratulations to our winner and our Top 3 cards awesome work ladies.

This week I felt a little GUILTY well a big bit GUILTY, that the image from DigisStamp Boutique I used didn't have to be coloured it's called Floral Black Set so because of that I created two cards using two of the images in the set.

I have a little smile on my face I made the Top 3 with my card from last week over at Brown Sugar Challenge. 

We have a lovely sketch this week design by our very own Sally Dube.  The sketch is very straight forward with two 1/4 circles hidden behind the circle.  I didn't have a die big enough so I used a desert bowl worked a treat.

Kathie, your cards are gorgeous. Don't feel guilty the images are elegant. Love the embossing and photo corners. You made both of these cards so elegant inside and out. I saw your win at Brown Sugar and did a Yahoo for you. Enjoy the week - I can't believe it's Wednesday already.
