It is a new week and the start of a new Sketch Challenge for the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge.  Again, this week, I'm featuring a Stampin' Up! retiring stamp set.  This stamp set is called "Clearly For You."  Since Mother's Day is just around the corner, I made this a Mother's Day card.

Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge # 37

Clearly For You Mother's Day Card


This is a Retiring Stamp Set that I have not used all that often but really did like.  I started with Melon Mambo and used the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Embossing Folder.  The baker's twine is the Early Espresso wrapped around the card twice and tied with a bow.  I used the Designer Frames Textured Embossing Folder to create a frame for the stamped images.  Finally, the "mom" is stamped and punched out with the Oval Punch and layered with the Scallop Oval using Regal Rose.  The stamp set used for the sentiment is Family Reunion.  The little flowers are created using the itty bitty punch set and a pearl is placed in the center.

The sketch for this card from the Stampin' Queen's Sketch challenge is fairly simple and a great sketch for anyone to use from the beginner to the advanced stamper.   Here is this weeks sketch for the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge # 37!  Please click here to visit the Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge Blog to participate.
