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)

Blast From the Past

Hope everyone had a wonderful week!  Welcome back for another Sweet Stop sketch.  For the month of October, we'll be taking a look at some fabulous sketches from the past, so for the next five Saturdays, get ready to play along with this "Blast From the Past!"

Creative Nugget: Since it's the beginning of October, I decided to go with an autumn theme for my sample, and who better to celebrate the beginning of a new month in fall than Rhubarb!  This image is from Sweet 'n Sassy's "Rhubarb's Autumn Joys" stamp set.  Rhubarb was colored with copic markers, cut with a square nestie, then mounted on an Early Espresso layer.  The designer papers used for this card are from Grandma's Kitchen by Were Are Memory Keepers.  The pattern reminded me of falling leaves and I thought it would be the perfect background to match the falling leaves in the image.  All panels are attached to an Early Espresso card base.  The corner leaf accent and the sentiment banner are both Spellbinder dies.  The pearls, descending in size, some piercing, double stitched ribbon, and Baker's twine finish the card!

This design is one of the very first Sweet Stop sketches from the past, so I hope you'll check out the samples by the other Sugar Babies and play along with us this week!

I love the fall leaves and the progression of the dots on the sentiment. This looks just like leather, actually. Beautiful job.
