Gift Girl

Good morning friends!  I  hope you've had a wonderful week.  I know I'm glad to be to Friday!  Today I get to share with you the card I made with Carly's current sketch at Sketches by Carly.  It is a fun sketch with lots of potential...as usual!
We are sponsored this week by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps so I used their super cute Ava's Gift digital Stamp.  I know her colors don't necessarily match but I do know that some little girls don't have to match perfectly when they get dressed either so I went with it!  I just pulled some paper out of my huge stash and went to work with the sketch.  This card feels very home-y to me.
Above is a shot of the inside and the sentiment that I decided to use with this card.  It is from PaperTrey Ink.  An oldie but goodie for sure!

Today is the beginning of a weekend that starts in what look like tragedy, Good Friday, and ends in the most glorious way!  I felt God leading me to fast today (sun up to sun down) so if you think of it say a little prayer for me. 

I hope you have a wonderful Friday!  Kyler's birthday is on Monday so we'll be having his party tomorrow.  It is just a big gathering of his friends to play some football and eat some bacon cheeseburger pizza, as well as celebrating with some yummy Snicker's cupcakes.  It should be lots of fun for him!

Adorable image, Lorie! I love that you used the scalloped squares behind the diamond shapes. That really sets it off nicely as well as the Bakers twine. I love that stuff too! :)

Hi Lorie, Your card is a beauty. Love the wonderful patterned background papers against the white scallop layers... it makes everything pop. What a great take on the sketch and such a sweet image.
Wishing you and yours a very Happy Easter.
