Mercy's Sketch Thoughts & Prayers
Happy Hump Day peeps!!! Hope your week is going well, we are on the down hill slide to the weekend!
Today's card is made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. When I sit down to make this card I knew I needed to use something other than Rich Razzleberry, So I chose Dusty Durango, another fave of the in-colors, but I don't have any DS paper to match it yet, so I reached for an old favorite, chocolate chip, I knew I had DS paper to match it!!!
I started the card with a base of chocolate chip cardstock cut to 5 by 10 inches and folded in half. I then followed that with some dusty durango and then some textured DS paper from the now retired Parisian Breeze pack.
The two middle strips are chocolate chip and dusty durango. I used a small cuttlebug embossing folder for the design on the dusty durango. The center element is made up of chocolate chip, dusty durango and PTI white. The stamp set is Thoughts & Prayers. I inked the tree up with dusty durango and then used my chocolate chip marker to go over the trees limbs and trunk. The sentiment is stamped with dusty durango as well. I used my corner rounder punch on the white and dusty durango pieces. I added the chocolate chip button to the side to cover up an ink smudge that some how happened when I was using my stamp-a-ma-jig for the sentiment!!! :(
The upper corner of the image panel has a spiral clip and some durango polka dot grosgrain ribbon.
I then added some antique copper brads and 1/4 inch durango punched circles. to the upper left corner.
On a personal note, one of my older brothers was diagnosed recently with hepatitis C and is really not doing well, I am very worried for him and would appreciate any thoughts and prayers sent up for him! The whole time I was making this card he was on my mind.
Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
