SSS212...True Blessing

It's Saturday! And time for another Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge.

I decided to keep things simple with my card for the sketch this week. I pulled out one of the flowers I crocheted. They are so much fun to make and pretty easy with some practice. The pattern paper is from MME. The sentiment is from the Sweet N Sassy set, Precious Poppies. Perfect on the wavy banner. I added some adhesive backed pearls randomly to the flower centers of the circle shape pattern paper. I used a gorgeous vintage brad in the center of the flower. It's all put together and adhered to a white square card base measuring 5.5" x 5.5".

It is now your turn to show us what you can make with The Sweet Stop Sketch this week. Head over to that blog to get all the sketch details and see what the rest of the Sugar Babies have made.

Please remember to take some time this weekend and especially on Monday to remember those who have given their lives to defend our country and pray for the families they left behind. I am thankful for those who are willing to put their lives on the line to secure my freedom. Have a blessed Memorial Day Weekend!
