SSS231...Comforting Bear Hugs

It's Sweet Stop Sketch Saturday and I had a lot of fun with the sketch this week. 

I received a new stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps in the mail this week and had to ink her up. The stamp name is Jasmine. This is my first stamp from the company. I just adore this little girl hugging her bear so tightly. The "Bear Hugs" sentiment is from the Sweet N Sassy Stamps set, Love From Rhubarb, which is on sale right now. I added a lot of texture to this card. I pulled the colors for the stamped image and the card stock from that plaid paper. I've had this plaid paper sitting on my table for a while and finally found a way to use it. I used embossing folders on the red and the blue panels. After embossing them, I rubbed some VersaMagic Cloud White Chalk Ink over them. I love that look. I added lots of silver half pearls to make it shine. Then finished it off with some white lace trim and polka dotted ribbon.

Now it is your turn to give the sketch a try. You can head over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog to see what all of the Sugar Babies did with the sketch and then link up your own creation.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God."  2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV)
