Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge

I'm happy that I was able to find some time to stamp today. I was so inspired by Beate's weekend sketch that I made two different cards with it. This first card is for the young daughter of Laurie - a very talented stamper whose blog I love to visit. I read about her at Beate's blog and then at SCS . Laurie's daughter has recently been hospitalized and has been undergoing tests. I can't even imagine what a nightmare it must be for the whole family. My heart goes out to them.Isn't this main image just adorable? My friend Denise sent me some of these images to play with. They are created by Whiff of Joy. I water colored the image and then added some glittery highlights to the wing and the swirls and hearts using a Stardust Jelly Roll Pen. It really shimmers in real life. Here's a close-up photo taken at an angle to capture a bit of the sparkle.

I stamped the Baha Blue layer with one of the stamps from Boho Backgrounds. The center of the Prima flower is a flower from that set punched out with the Boho Blossoms punch. Then I added an adhesive jewel to the center.

The patterned paper is from the retired Flowers For You pack of designer prints. Other colors used: Pretty in Pink & Passion Pink. As you can see, I flipped the sketch on it's side so it would work with the image I wanted to use.

I hope Ali likes my card. I'm sure she has received a lot of beautiful cards and hopefully it will bring her and her family some comfort to know that so many people are praying for her. Well, it's getting near dinner time, so I guess I'll share the other card I made using this sketch with you tomorrow. Have a good night!

Love this Lynn! What a special card, sorry for the reason you had to make it though. Such a sad story.

Again, this layout is great. Love the floral background and the coloring on your image. Great floral accent too.

I'm sure this will help to brighten her day. :)
