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 # 126

Freshly Made Sketches  has a fun new sketch up...
My BFF (Linda) and I made a template so we would have it always *wink*
Paper:  PTI scarlet jewel, sweet blush pattern paper, rustic cream
inks:  pure poppy, sweet blush,
stamps and dies:  Lovely Layers, Garden Grace
translucent embossing paste
Crafters Workshop stencil:  Mini flower Piecing
zing embossing powder
I used the stencil and some translucent embossing paste to make the face of the card, it is really shiny and pretty in real life!
Thanks for taking a look!
Heart Hugs,
