Giving Comfort

Happy Wednesday friends! You know that today brings a new sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and this week we have one of my favorite digi stamp companies as a sponsor - A Day For Daisies.  This card I created today is for my dear sister who is recovering from some major surgery in the past week and has a long road to recovery.  This sweet image speaks to me giving comfort to her right now.

We have this fantastic sketch for you this week.  It's another blast from the past sketch, originally used in week 69 and one of Arlana's best. It's a beautiful layout and makes for a really interesting card.

We're so lucky to be sponsored so often by Tammy at A Day For Daisies. The images she creates are just beautiful and I love how they lend themselves to a vintage look.  Tammy seems to capture all of life's moments which makes her shop the perfect destination when you're looking for that special image for a unique card.  The Grand Prize winner of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week will receive a $12 gift certificate to A Day For Daisies - fabulous prize! Thanks for your generous support Tammy!

This sweet image is called Giving Comfort from A Day For Daisies.  It was colored with Copic markers, paired with papers from MME Stella Rose "Mabel" collection that I still have in my stash and Spellbinders dies used. Some sponging to distress the image and papers help bring a vintage feel to the card.

You can find more inspiration today over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday where my fellow design team mates have created some gorgeous works of art using A Day For Daisies images and the new sketch.  Stop on by there to give your eyes a treat!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi sharon, I do love your card and I do hope your Sister is on the road to recovery and is getting better each day as she will love this card. Your image and card is so pretty and I'm still trying to work out how you made your bow, is it two bows tied together because it looks like a double bow. This is a great card which I adore. Wishing you a wonderful week.
Hugs
