Christ's Love


Isn't this a great sentiment by Michael Card to highlight on this CAS card? I hadn't planned on including so many challenges in one card, but it all fell together, so here's the list:
SCS CAS Challenge: love theme
Card Patterns Sketch Challenge
ODBD Shining Light Challenge -  use colors pink, black and/or gray, white/vanilla
Moxie Fab World Spatter Technique Challenge
I used a color spritzer tool (or as I commonly call it - the "spitter" tool) to give a very subtle splatter effect.  I inserted a Tombow marker (#725) into the tool and "spit" the color onto the base panel.   I inked up this checkerboard stamp for the first time from Tim Holtz' Grunge Cirque set and LOVED the look of it!  What in the world was I waiting on?!  Some fave mini rolled roses over a black flag die and this was fast and easy to create! 

Hope all of my American friends are enjoying this Memorial Day and remembering those who served and are still serving to protect our freedom!  I thought the love theme was a very appropriate one for the day!  Thanks for stopping by...and as always, I cherish your comments!

Love your take on the sketch.
I actually used this sketch for my father's day cards, but I can never get them posted in time. I won't get it on my blog until this weekend! :)
