CCS Sketch Challange CVSC07

Sunday was Sketch Day over at CCS and I couldn't wait to participate. Below is the sketch:

If you follow my blog at all you know that I can't leave a sketch like it is usually. Today is no different, don't get me wrong...Laura did a great job on this sketch BUT when I was making my card, my bottom squares ended up too big so I rotated them and, well the general idea is still there...take a peek:

I used the Chunky Dunk stamp from CCS however, my acrylic stamps shriek in terror when they see me with my Exacto knife...this stamp is supposed to read "You used to skinny dip but now you chunky dunk". However, I had my amazing mother in mind who has lost close to 100lbs. when I made this and therefore, took the Exacto to my stamp.  (Also, my computer got a bug this weekend and I have no way to get my photos off my camera without my card reader that's built into my computer (I'm using my work computer now)so I unfortunately had to scan my card. I hate to do that because it takes away so much from the art.) I used some papers from a Die Cuts With A View stack I had purchased this summer and had never used. It's glittery on the blue parts. It's fun to work with now that I've actually broken into the stack. I inked the edges of the sentiment with some Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks and Whala!  Thanks for stopping by and and get over to Creative Clear Stamps and play along with the sketch!
