Sweet Sketch Wednesday #52

Good Morning!  Happy Wednesday!  I am bit late with this post.  I honestly thought I had set this auto-post.  I had a wonderful weekend in Michigan with my cousin.  I got to meet his children, they are wonderful!  I spent some time on couple of beaches and explored an amazing Garden with gorgeous sculptures.

But let's get on with this week's challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Here's the fabulous sketch Arlana has for us this week....



Our sponsor this week is Digi Doodle Shop and the prize is 3 digi stamps to the randomly drawn winner!  So here's what I did with the sketch.  (Note:  The website is experiencing some technical difficulties - keep checking.)




I used Old Water Pump for my card and boy is this out of my comfort zone.  I don't usually do vintage images.  The sentiment is computer generated, a verse from the Bible that I thought was very appropriate to the image.

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Milled Ivory, Black
Paper:  Making Memories Just Chillin' paper stack
Copics:  BV00, BV02, C8, C10, E53, E57, W-3, YG95, B95, E29, G99
Tools:  Cuttlebug, Distressed Stripes CB folder
Embellishments:  Pearl, Prima flower

I hope you like my card.  Head on over to the SSW blog to find out how to join the fun and see what the rest of the team.  Wonderful eye-candy!!  Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Melissa,

You couldn't tell by me that this is out of your comfort zone. The card is fabulous, and the scripture IS perfect for it. I love the way you put black around the stamp. It really brings it forward. It's just been a total joy sponsoring SSW, and I look forward to many returns. Thank you for the fabulous job.
