...Thoughts & Prayers

Don't forget to enter to win some yummy BLOG CANDY HERE! Deadline is Monday.

This is my submission for Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try that posted today. I started with a Kraft Cardstock base, and matted each additional layer with Chocolate Chip Cardstock. The patterned papers were from the To the Nines Specialty Designer Series Paper pack. The edges of the striped panel and the focal panel were pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The tree and sentiment were both from the set "Thoughts & Prayers". The tree was colored with a Sage Shadow Stampin' Write Marker and Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker, then it was stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock. The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink onto a scrap piece of Sage Shadow Cardstock. A piece of 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon was tied around the bottom panels. A Clear Button and Sage Button were tied together with a piece of Natural Hemp, then attached to the card using a Mini Glue Dot.

That's it for today! I am working on some more challenges, so I might have more cards to share later on today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all later! Until then...
