PPA 220

Here is my card for the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge 220.  I love this sketch and will definitely try it again!  Sadly, I need to get a jump on some sympathy cards.  I have an uncle who is dying.  We haven't been close for many years, but he was really close to me when I was younger.  I was the daughter he didn't have.  He eventually had his own kids and has been a great father. I thought I would have a few ready so that I don't stress about it when it gets here.  He has stopped eating and drinking so it could be any day.

Anyway, I didn't meant to have a depressing post!  I used the Bloom with Hope stamp set and colored the image with Blendabilities.  The designer series paper is from the Flower Pot  pack.  I used Old Olive and Crumb Cake for cardstock.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

I completely forgot where I was going with this post.  I want to show you what I did to save paper.  I hate throwing anything out!  I wanted to stamp the sentiment right on the dsp but ended up getting the edge of the stamp.

I turned it around.

And covered up the sentiment because I was popping the flower up and I didn't want the black to show.

After that, I put the flower circle on top and the mistake was gone!

Here are some weekly deals for you!
