Encouragement Card for Sketches by Carly

Hi fellow bloggers and readers.  I am so excited today as I will be joining Sketches by Carly as a Guest Designer for a couple months.  I hope you will stop by and check out the inspiring cards being created on her blog.  Carly is a very talented 13 yr. old who designs the sketches every two weeks for the great contests featured on that blog.  Be sure and take time to enter.  Her sketches are fun and great to work with.  I am proud to be part of their DT team. 

I created this card for my male cousin using my new CTMH stamp set "Perfect Day"; which includes three phrases and three pictures.  I fell in love with it the first time I saw it and I got it free with the purchase of two stamp sets.  I  used Stella paper from Workshops on the Go - Stella Kit because all the borders are words such as:  family, love, ties that bind, together we can move mountains, laughter and remember.  I thought this was very appropriate because family is so important; especially when you are having a crisis in your life.


I used Sketch #58 at Sketches by Carly.  It is being sponsored by The Paper Shelter. 

Supplies used for this card:

Card size - 6 1/2 x 5
Card Stock - CTMH Lagoon and Colonial White
Paper - Workshops on the Go - Stella Kit (Can also purchase paper packet separately)
Punch - Recollections Border Punch
Stamp Set - CTMH Perfect Day - C1499
Ink - CTMH Tulip  Exclusive Ink for sentiment and edges of colonial white card
Ink - CTMH Black Exclusive Ink for lighthouse scene and sea gulls
Button - Badge Buttons (Pewter) Z1704
Foam Tape - CTMH 3-D Foam Tape
Colored pencils for the color on Lighthouse scene

  9. I really like your card and sentiment. I love CTMH stamps. I totally agree with with you about family. We always need to be there for each other. I saw one recently that I am including in a senior scrapbook for my son who is graduating in 2 days. "You never know how strong you are until strong is the only thing you can be." I did sign up. Thank you for both your visit and becoming a follower. I do appreciate it! See you again soon.
