Retro Sketches #14

Happy Saturday!  I am here today with another round of Retro Sketches!  This weeks sketch is brought to you by...me!  You can see my original card HERE!

Here is take 2...

I made my own pattern paper by stamping on pattern paper.  I am going to guess that this may be the first time I have done this.  It was hard for my one track mind to do.  But I did.  And then I embossed it!  The shape is SU's Top Note die.  I remember when that thing came out I HAD to have it!  I still really like it but I don't use it as much as I used to!  I added a little scripture from PTI and a bow!  

Here is the sketch...



I can't wait to see your take on this sketch!  I hope you can play along!  Go link up your creations HERE!  You can check out Arielle, Kasia and Jackie's creations while you're there! 

A big thank you to all the amazing support I received over this last week!  So many emails and notes and I am just speechless!  I am truly honored to have made it to the Top 20 of Gallery Idol.  I made 19 new amazing friends and we have had a blast in our own little Facebook group chatting it up this week!  I can't wait to see what they have for us in this next round!  

Have a great weekend!

Great take on your own design. Sometimes it's difficult to CASE your own. Love how the verse takes center stage.
