100th Sketch on the Sweet Stop!

Hey all! This week is a very special week over on the Sweet Stop Blog. It's not only our "Sketch with a Spin Week" but it's also the 100th sketch!! Korin is offering up a chance for you to win a $25 gift certificate to the store AND a tutorial CD from Technique Junkies. Hop on over to the Sweet Stop Blog to find out more details.



For my card today, I used this cute elephant from OCL's new Circus Circus set. I used the "sweet" sentiment to go with this week's sketch with a spin theme. The main matted image is up on foam tape, I added a little bit of stardust Stickles to the elephant's ears and on the grass around his feet, and the card measures 5" square. All the DP is Little Boy by Echo Park, which you can get over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Here's the sketch...



Hope you have an AWESOME Saturday!
