With Sympathy FMS312

November 10, 2017

I had a few extra minutes so, I wanted to play along with the lovely ladies at Freshly Made Sketches. I love the sketch this week because I am all about "square" cards.  

A few weeks ago, I was driving through Alabama on the way back from the beach with girlfriends.  All along the way we saw beautiful fields of cotton.  I knew that I had to buy this stamp from Altenew.  It is called Cotton Comfort.  I stamped and then shaded the cotton with Copic Markers and cut is out using the matching dies.  Wink of Stella was added for shine.  I used a white card base, Early Expresso background and Crumb Cake for my top layer.  I stenciled the top portion using Memento Cocoa ink.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  A few sequins were added to complete my card.  I think this card will be comforting to the recipient.  

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

A huge THANK YOU to all the Veterans!  SO proud to be an American!



  1. Love how you stenciled part of the background to mimic the sketch! It works so well with this stunning cotton flower ! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  2. I like how you did the sketch by stenciling the dots. It's a great accent that still keeps all the focus on the cotton! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
