MTSC60 Wishes

Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!

Today I am sharing a card made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. Before moving onto the card I wanted to share some devastating news. Shannon one of the wonderful girls on Mercy's sketch team, lost her husband on Sunday. If you click on her name it will take you to her blog where so posted about him. My heart just breaks for her and her family. She has two young boys who no longer have their father, life should just not be this way. If you would like to send her a card just let me know and I can get you her address.

Now back to the sketch:

You can see that my card varies a bit from the sketch, that is what happens when I rely on my memory. I looked at the sketch and then went off to work on it and didn't print it out, so my sentiment panel overlaps the side panel, which is not how the sketch is, but it's close and will be OK I guess.

The base of the card is a 6-1/2 inch piece of melon mambo card stock folded in half. This size card will fit in the small open end envelopes that SU sells, altho with my crinkly flower I don't think this card is going into any envelope.

The DS paper is from the Sweet Pea pack and is mated with some pumpkin pie card stock. I used the scallop edge punch on the side. The sentiment comes from the "Heard from the Heart" stamp set and is stamped with black stazon onto white card stock. These crinkly flowers are very popular right now and are really fun and easy to make. I added a big ol button from my stash with some crochet thread tied through it. The leaves are from the sizzix sizzlits little leaves die and are cut with old olive card stock.

Well, that's it from me today, thanks so much for coming by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Lovely sketch card, Vicki. I'm off to work on this one myself as the mojo one is taking a bit of thinking LOL! Great paper flower!

I'd love Shannan's address. My heart breaks for her as my kids are just a few years older than hers and I can only imagine what they would go through. Would love to send her some SCS/Stamper's love Many thanks!
