SSSC53 Kindness

Good Sunday Morning Peeps! It is my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!!!

Here is the sketch we are working with this week:

I have to say I was inspired by Nancy's Sweet Sunday Sketch Card from last week to pull out my Cottage Wall DS pack. I used it alot when I first got it and then hadn't used it lately. So that was my starting point for this card. I chose the DS designs I wanted to use and then I also used rich razzleberry and whisper white card stock.

The stamp set I used is a new fave of mine "Herb Expressions". The sentiment comes from the "Heard from the Heart" set. I inked up just the "kindness" on the stamp, by using some post it note paper to mask off the rest of the words. I stamped the flower or herb with black stazon and used my aqua painter to lightly color in the leaves with old olive ink and the tops with rich razzleberry ink. I used my new Border Scallop trim punch, which is from the SAB catalog, for the bottom edge of the second layer. I used my blossom and circle nesties to cut out the main image panel. It is attached to the base with some foam tape. I added some old olive buttons and some piercing under the sentiment to finish the card.

Well, that is all from me, let's see what the rest of the Sketch Team has for you today.
