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.

Today brings us a Lowes Build and Grow session, 2 birthday parties, a soccer game, and a Cub Scout Pack Meeting. Tomorrow Colin has a ceremony at church introducing the kids who are going to be making their 1st Communions this year. Then we are going out with my family to celebrate my Dad’s birthday and Roger and my 9th wedding anniversary. It’s another busy weekend. Hopefully we’ll get some down time in there too.
