Hope – SFYTT

As I sat down to complete the card for today’s Sketch for You to Try from Jen I realized that September was almost over and that October is almost here.  It’s just a few short days until National Breast Cancer Awareness month is here.  I decided to pull out my Ribbon of Hope stamp and use it for the sketch.  It worked perfectly and was meant to be.

The base of the card is Pretty in Pink.  I then layered Basic Gray, Very Vanilla and Lap of Luxury dsp.  The rectangles that provide a pop of color are Concord Crush and they were textured with the Lattice Embossing Folder.  After I assembled these layers I stitched around each of them with my sewing machine.  I then added the main image layer with the popped up Pretty in Pink ribbon.  In the center I added a rhinestone.  The sentiment tag was made with Matchbox Messages and the retired Kind & Caring Thoughts Hostess stamp set.

Here is the wonderful sketch Jen provided for us this week. I hope you have a chance to play along with us.

  1. This is a beautiful version you came up with. I like the way you combined stitching with faux stitching and the raised look as well. 🙂

  2. The embossing is the perfect touch, Jenn, and I love that you’re gearing us up for next month! Great card Ü

    BTW, I got a peek at your previous Halloween card post and love the layout and colors together! The spider web at the top is perfect!

  3. Fantastic card, Jenn! Superb job with the sketch!
