Grow in Grace...SSS208

Happy Saturday! It is supposed to be beautiful weather all weekend and I am camping. Yeah!!! I also have my weekly Sweet Stop Sketch card to share with you.

I struggled a little with this sketch. But after all that is what challenges are for, right? The papers are from My Minds Eye Stella Rose. It is my favorite pad of paper right now. :)  The card base is Blue Bayou (miss that color from SU). And the circle is matted with Early Espresso. I used some distress inks on the edges of the papers and added some texture with the sewing machine. The stamp set I used is called Vintage Seed Packet. I love the little sentiment "Grow in Grace". Perfect for a seed packet image.

I hope you will take some time to join us and play along with the sketch challenge this week. You can get the sketch challenge details on on The Sweet Stop blog and you can see what the other Sugar Babies made with the sketch.

Have a crafty weekend!
