SSS214...God Makes it Possible

Happy Saturday! We have another fun sketch here at The Sweet Stop for you. I had a lot of fun with this one. I used some great textures to create an uplifting card.

I used some of my favorite Sweet N Sassy stamps on this one. The sentiment I used from the Be Encouraged set is one of my favorites. I am so glad that the God I serve does not have limits. For texture I used a couple of embossing folders. I also bought some thin adhesive backed cork the other week that I used for the card. I stamped the chevron pattern from Grunge Borders with Early Espresso ink. The new Stampin' Up ink works so well on the cork. I will be making some more cards in the near future with this cork. I also found some awesome pattern paper from Hobby Lobby the other week that I used as my jumping point for the colors and theme. The tag and it's elements are from the free Silhouette cut file this week. I will be entering this card in their challenge this week as well. I just thought the tag was perfect for the focal image of this card. I used a small crocheted flower made by me. I am addicted to making these little flowers. They are so much fun to make.

Melissa, this is so wonderful. Just like God, he is always in the background but he has a bold message for us all. That is what I see in this tag. Love the colors and sentiment!

Love that texture, Melissa - cork, crochet, lace and embossing! And your colour combo is super - the large sentiment on the tag is a great idea. HugsX
