WCMD...a day late!

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a great World Card Making Day yesterday! I wasn't able to get ANY of the SCS challenges done yesterday, but I am stamping a bit today...I don't think I will be able to get them all done by tonight though!!

Here is my card for WCMD09A, hosted by Unity Stamps. I only have ONE Unity set (the horrors!!), and the set I have does not have a quote (sob!!). This challenge was to use a quote as the focal image of your card.

My card is also for my sweet friend Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC38, which I always mean to do and never find the time!! She has the best sketches...I am going to make a HUGE effort to play each Sunday!!

For my card, I used a beautiful quote from the Faith & Hope set from Taylored Expressions. The quote is by Sarah Ban Breathnach and it states "Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons do not last. The spring rain will come again". I LOVE this quote! I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and stamped the swirl, from the same set, in Soft Sky behind the quote.

The paper is Wintergreen, a retired SU! DSP, and I embossed my Always Artichoke panel with the Diamond & Stars Impressabilities by Spellbinders. I added piercing to each panel and finished the card off with some Whisper White Organdy Ribbon that I colored with a Copic Marker (B00 Frost Blue) and Always Artichoke Grograin Ribbon, and two pearl brads that were in my stash.

Off to try another challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
