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)

Cheer Up, Buttercup!

Hello, and happy Saturday to you sketch lovin' friends!  It's the first Saturday in September and time for another fabulous sketch at The Sweet Stop!  One of my little cherubs from church had to have her tonsils removed this week, so a combination of the new sketch and a Tiddly Inks digi were used to make the perfect card to help cheer her up!

Creative Nugget:  The "Wryn - Grow a Little Love" digi from Tiddly Inks, was colored with copic markers, cut with an oval nestie, and mounted to a floral oval die which had been cut in half to fit the image.  Several patterned papers from the Alora Collection by Bo Bunny were stitched together on a Smokey Shadow panel.  This was adhered to a Picnic Plaid embossed panel and stitched to another piece of Smokey Shadow card stock.  All of the layers were mounted to a Rocket Red card doesn't that color bring back old SU! memories!  Wryn was popped up on top of a ruffled ribbon and bow.  The sentiment was computer generated and hand cut into a little banner.  A few dew drops were added to finish the card.  This little darling should cheer up my little buttercup, don't you agree?  I did change the orientation of the sketch to accommodate my image.  This card was also submitted for the "Ways to Use It" Challenge at Splitcoaststampers this week...Hannah had challenged us to make a card to make someone SMILE!

Be sure to check out the wonderful samples by the other Sugar Babies and play along with SSS174 over at The Sweet Stop.
