SSSC38 Grateful



Good Morning Peeps!!!!

It's Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch!!!!!! This card was made with the SSSC#38.

I used the "Thoughts & Prayers" Stamp set for the tree and for the sentiment I used "Falling Leaves". The base of the card is always artichoke, followed by some whisper white and then the artichoke DS paper is from a retired hostess print patterns pack. I wanted to work some really rust into my card to co-ordinate with the tree leaves. I searched and searched for some in my stash and finally came upon this piece from a retired fall pack, not sure of the name. I inked up the tree with markers in always artichoke, really rust and a bit of summer sun. I stamped onto whisper white and matted with artichoke. I used some small buttons from the earth element buttons for some fun accents on the tree. I threaded the buttons with some crochet thread, and added them to the tree with glue dots.

The sentiment is stamped with really rust ink and punched out with the word window punch. I matted on a piece of really rust cardstock punched with the modern label punch. I added some dusty durango ribbon with the polka dots to the back across the bottom of the rust striped layer and added a bow. The main image is attached to the base with some dimensionals.

Here is the sketch:
