And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Make a Wish

Happy Saturday to you, my friends!  Have you noticed all the pink challenges out there in blog land this month?  Breast Cancer Awareness is the reason for all the pink during the month of October and here at The Sweet Stop, we've decided to join the crowd.  Not only are we revisiting SSS69 from the past, but we are all using pink for our samples!

Creative Nugget:  I flipped the sketch to accommodate this little Mo Manning cutie which was colored with copic markers.  Some Diamond Stickles were added to the dandelion puffs, parts of her outfit, and her ponytail band.  While still in the rectangle nestie, Antique Linen Distress Ink was sponged around the border.  This was attached to a True Black Spellbinders label twenty-three die cut.  All of the pretty "My Mind's Eye" papers were layered on True Black.  These were then adhered to a Pink Pirouette card base.  A border was punched from the same "My Mind's Eye" paper as the background and then layered on black.  Charcoal and Blossom twine was also wrapped around the three pink gingham panels.  The greeting was mounted on several matching circle punches and covered with a page bubble.  Pearls were colored to match and stuck on the border to finish the card.  Hope you like my pretty pink sample!  Now check out the other fabulous samples by the Sugar Babies Team and join the SNSS131 sketch challenge over at The Sweet Stop!
