One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #9-A Sketch by Tui Nathan

For this sketch I used the Nativity Silhouettes Stamp set from Papertrey, Ink.  I stamped the silhouettes with Aqua Mist ink onto white paper, I used the "Daffodil" color from the Designer Ink pad for the halo and star...the sentiment was stamped with versamark and embossed with white filigree embossing powder.  I added some pearls to each side of the sentiment.  The aqua mist background paper was stamped with versamark using the Background Basics:  Twinkle from Papertrey also.
Please go check out the sketches here: Freshly Made Sketches
