Skipping Stones Design Sketch #71 & Lawnscaping Challenge #7

This week's sketch by Laurie Schmidlin at Skipping Stones Design is such a versatile sketch to use.  I just love it and plan to make more cards using it.  I decided to make a get feeling better card because my aunt-in-law isn't doing so well.  I wanted a very elegant card to send her.  I used some scrap papers lying around from my mother's day cards.  I really love how this card turned out, so I will be off to the craft store this week to buy more paper.

I also found a new, great blog--Lawnscaping Challenge.  Be sure to check out their great stamps.  I can't wait to buy some!  For this challenge you had to make your own patterned paper with stamps.  I stamped the background with Teresa Collins--Posh stamp set.


Stamps:  Teresa Collins--Posh; Sentiment stamp--Stampabilities
Ink:  Distressed Ink--Walnut Stain
Paper:  craft paper--The Paper Company; vellum--source unknown; patterned paper--Le'Romantique--Collection (graphic 45)
Ribbon--Joann's (flower--self created)
