Thoughts and prayers--Sketches! {by Tamara} #92

Time for another Sketches! {by Tamara} Sketch Challenge--#92. Here's the sketch:

My base card is Kraft with a layer of Baja Breeze and a partial layer of Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP. I stamped the sentiment, from SU!'s Thoughts and Prayers set, on the Baja Breeze and used my slot punch to run some Kraft ribbon through and tie in a bow. The focal image is from the same set and was colored with SU! Chocolate Chip marker and a Baja Breeze reinker and my blender pen on Whisper White. I cut/embossed it with my new Labels Four Nestabilities die and matted it on Baja Breeze and Kraft cut/embossed with Petite Oval dies. The Baja Breeze and Kraft layers are separated by 3M foam squares and the whole thing is up on foam squares, as well. Some flat back pearls in two sizes accent the focal image and was all it needed to be finished, I think. You agree? I'm liking it!

Don't forget to check out the sketch at the Sketches! {by Tamara} blog and give it a try--we'd love to see what you come up with!
