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)

Hello sketch lovin' friends!  It's Saturday and time for another fabulous sketch at The Sweet Stop, but we've reached a MILESTONE...200 sketches! That's is the 200th sketch at The Sweet Stop! So...we are going to celebrate!  Not only do the Sugar Babies have some wonderful samples to spark your creativity, but we've each chosen our personal favorite sketch from the past.  In honor of the 200th sketch, we are giving a PRIZE to one lucky participant...a $20 gift certificate to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store. favorite sketch from the past!

This card was created using SSS165.  These pretty vintage papers work so well with the sweet image of the mother holding her baby from the Vintage Baby clear stamp set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Since I love working with layers, and matching colors and patterns, this sketch was right up my alley.  You can find the details and the sketch for this card on my blog post found HERE.

Now...on to this week's sketch!

Creative Nugget: Look...another sketch with layers!  LOL!  One image from Long Stem Silhouettes was stamped in Spun Sugar and the other one stamped in Soft Suede right on the patterned paper.  A little Copic shading was added to the silhouette for depth. The Basic Grey papers were stitched to Vintage Cream and Kraft card stocks.  The lace and trim added were from a local fabric store and matched the colors of the DP perfectly.  The sentiment banner was hand cut, and pearls were added to the centers of the flowers to finish the card.

Check out the other Sugar Babies for some fabulous samples and be sure to help us celebrate by joining us at The Sweet Stop for SSS200!  Just link up your card using the Linky Tool to be eligible for the PRIZE!
