Hope Is Faith
Last night I stayed up way too late making cards and trying to keep up with Gina K.’s release party on StampTV at the same time. I made this card for Theresa’s sketch challenge (GKAPR10TM), using the sentiment from Hope Is Faith.

This layout was perfect for trying out my new Nesties. I cut a large curved rectangle out of Kioshi paper, which matches the Lovely Lavender card stock beautifully! The sentiment stamp was inked up with markers, cut out with a smaller matching die, and sponged around with Soft Sky ink. I thought the polka-dot butterfly looked nice with the polka-dot embossed background.

Thanks for stopping by!
