CPS sketch sponsored by Sweet N Sassy stamps

This week Sweet N Sassy stamps is the proud sponsor on the card positioning systems blog this week.

Here is this week's sketch and my card that I made with it

I stamped the sentiment and sponged around it using my oval die as a stencil. I absolutely love this sentiment from the newly released True Friend stamp set! I stitched each of the sections with my janome sew mini. The primas were each painted with shimmerz paints and then accented with pearls.

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps True Friend
CS- creamy caramel, bazzill dk brown, basic grey bittersweet dp
accessories- pink taffeta ribbon, pearls, pink poinsettia blingz shimmerz, gold glimmer blingz, corner rounder punch, sewing machine, oval nestabilities, primas

If you decide to participate in the sketch challenge and post a link to your project in THIS post on the CPS blog by Friday night you are eligible to be put into a random drawing for a great prize from Sweet N Sassy stamps! So get creating- we'd love to see what you come up with.

Have a blessed day!

Your card so so beautiful and classy. Love it.

Thanks so much for explaining each of your steps. I never thought of using my oval die as a stencil or painting my primas.

Wonderful work!
