Fetch A Sketch Challenge #2

 

I followed this sketch at Fetch a Sketch


At Fetch-A-Sketch, the ladies are well underway with a challenge, so thought I'd add a card I've made for a specific person while using their sketch. Our Bible study leader is 70 and is getting re-married. It seems it's never too late to find love. Ordinarily, I'd send her a "Christian" themed card, but she's getting a bit of negative feedback here and there, so I wanted to perk up her spirits and remind her to just go for it. Afterall, when you've reached 70 years old, do you really care what people think? I know I won't! I should add....it matters only what God the Father knows.
So I used SU's riding hood red and the newer SU dandilion. I embossed with a CB folder and carefully brushed a nice bright red dye ink over it. Using a circle Nestie, and for the frame, a scallopedNestie, I stamped two different Michael dollar stamps on the circle. I colored the kite with my new "just couldn't resist" Memento markers. My strip is an EK Success punched out black scrap. I had a sparkly star button in my stash, which I glued on in the corner. If this card is nothing else, it certainly is bright. I am praying that she and her intended have a bright and cheery future ahead of them.

Hugs & Blessings,
Erica
