Thankful For You!!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's Sketch Challenge on The Sweet Stop, SSS26! Today's sketch is also a Sketch With A Spin, and the theme is "Let's Recycle!" How fun!

For my card, I started by printing this DARLING digi image from Sweet N' Sassy Stamps, Thankful For You! onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and I colored her with Copic Markers.

I then cut out the image with Circle Nestabilities, and framed it with Scallop Circle Nestabilities.

I then cut apart my sentiment, as per the sketch, and sponged all of the Buttercream panels with Close to Cocoa Ink and a Sponge. I did sew on each of the panels, including my circle focal point!!

For my recycled element, I recycled the flowers that are on this card! They had been living on another card that I never completed! I simply sponged them to give them an aged look and added buttons to the centers!!

The color combo is Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue and Buttercream and the Brocade Blue DSP is from Patterns Pack II from SU!

You can see what the other Sugar Babies have done with this sketch right here:

  6. OMGosh, Jodi, you rocked this sketch and that sweet image! You are such an amazing artist. I love visiting your blog every day (yep, I'm always here even if I don't comment). By the way, I read about you I think in the TE newsletter and wanted to mention that way back in the earlier years of my career, I was a paralegal specializing in eminent domain (but also real property acquisition for some of the firm's public agency clients), and now I'm the Director of Real Estate Services for UCR. We have something else in common besides a love of stamping, whimsical images, and bright colors! LOL
