Great Sketch

There's a great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  Actually it was last week but there's still time to enter a card.

Here is the sketch Rita gave us to work with.

I love the clean and simple lines of the sketch.

I just happened to have this little design piece left over from the Stamp Stack samples.  A few scrap pieces helped to finish it off.

Edited to add:  The design was colored with SU Markers.

Did you notice the embossed scallops?  I used the new Adorning Accents Embossing Folder to emboss a divider between the sentiment and the design.

Operation Write Home has asked for Mother's Day cards to send to the troops and I've been meaning to get some made for weeks now.  This seemed like a perfect time to start.  If you enter the challenge, you even have a chance to win a prize.  The cards are due to the shipper by march 20th.  That's not very far away is it?

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Simply Soft, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, SU Markers (Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz)
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Other:  Blender Pen, Corner Rounder Punch, Big Shot, Adorning Accents EF, Square Lattice EF

I'm off to the craft room to cut sets for the Stamp Stack and listen to an audiobook.  I've been listening to Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult.  I think I've renewed it 5 times now.  That's 10 weeks!  Lucky for me they allow a lot of renewals at our library.  The catch is, it has to be an old book that everyone else has listened to.  But old books are still good books.

I'm happy that you stopped by to visit.  I love hearing what you think and paying you a visit too.

This sunny color makes me smile! I like the sketch you used, too, and the way you embossed that 'belly' band.
