Sweet Sketch Wednesday!!

I am so very excited to be able to say that I am on a Design Team!!!  AND to be able to say that I am on the Design Team of my favorite Sketch Challenge - Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I never used to think about making square cards, but now I find that square cards are what I want to make!!  I love Arlana's Sketches with all the layering and the perfect layout to feature those favorite stamps.  SWEET!!
Even though I am not entering my card this week, and my first week to feature a card as a DT Member is next week, I couldn't resist the Sketch.  Perfect for an Anniversary card I wanted to make.  So check out my card and please, check out the Challenge over at the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Blog.  The Sponsor this week is Milk N Coffee Stamps.  They have some really sweet images.  I know I will be picking up a few...

Tonight I used a stamp from Lili of the Valley.  I love this little boy and girl on the swing.  I love back shots...  Some of my favorite pictures of my kids when they were young are from the back...
The couple I am going to give this card to have been married more than 50 years.  So I love the sentiment LoTV put with this stamp: "Together Forever".  How true!!  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copics.  I then fussy cut it out and mounted it with Pop Dots.  The paper is Lily Bee Design - Buttercup and the ribbon is from my stash.
I am entering this card in the Challenge at The Paper Shelter - LAYERS...

Thanks so much for stopping by and I do hope you will play along at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!!
