Sketch Challenge - Thanks for Caring

Good evening friends!  What a great weekend.  We enjoyed getting Aidan's "big boy" room all set up which he loves and then we had beautiful weather on Sunday and a lot of fun stamping with the ladies.  My mom has made a request for some sympathy cards to add to her card stash so I thought this weeks Stamping 411 challenge design would be perfect. 

I started with a cardbase of  Baja Breeze and added a layer of Not Quite Navy that I ran through the Tulip Border Embossing folder.  A piece of the Vintage Spring DSP is along the left side.  The main image is from the Thanks for Caring stamp set and (one of my favorites from the Occasions Mini catalog) and was just inked with Stampin' Write markers directly on the rubber to provide the multi-colored image.    Along the right side of the greeting is a piece of Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon and then a double bow I created with the same ribbon.   A Very Vanilla Vintage Adornment was added to the center of the bow.  The final touch was some paper piercing in the corners on the left side of the greeting.

Now check out the sketch we were provided.  This card turned out perfect and is very calm and peaceful.

Hope you have a great week and happy stamping!
