She believed she could..

I’ve been wanting to made a feminine soft card all week and finally had the chance!

Tonight I made this card for a dear friend of mine who is going through a rough time at the moment. Everyone needs a bit of encouragement sometimes in life and I believe this is a moment that she needs it. And what better way then a beautiful card!

I designed my card from the latest sketch at Sketch and Stash. I love the idea of this challenge site as they challenge you to use something new or neglected from your stash. I’m sure everyone of us can relate to this and I quite frequently feel sorry for all the little bits and pieces that don’t get used. Quite literately! I can see my mum shaking her head as I always keep the smallest of scrap pieces of paper but I’m getting better and understand when it’s best to let go!

Something that I believe become quite neglected in our stash are our stampin’ write markers. I always struggle to use them but have been enjoying the watercolour technique that they produce. I also believe that this would be the first time in using some of these old in colours as well as the designer series paper!

So here is sketch challenge #136:

Here is my take on the sketch:

Very happy with this card and hope my friend enjoys it as well.

Thanks for visiting today!

Remember to smile as you never know who’s day it will brighten!

  1. aww Jess this is lovely, anyone would love to receive this, you did a wonderful job of lifting her spirits! I love every;thing about how you have put this together, the watercolour, the doilies, roses, pearls, lace, ribbon and anything I’ve forgotten to mention. Great card.
