Faith is... Sketches! {by Tamara} Challenge #96

It's Thursday so it's time for another Sketches! {by Tamara} card sketch challenge--this is Challenge #96 and here's the sketch.

I started with a Very Vanilla card base and added layers of Sahara Sand, So Saffron, and DP from the Everafter collection by Cosmo Cricket. The sentiment is from Flourishes Timeless Quotes set and was stamped on Very Vanilla with Sahara Sand, then I went over the word "Faith" with a gold ink pen and dotted the "i" with a tiny flat backed gold bead. I used deckle edge Nestabilities dies on the sentiment and the So Saffon and Sahara Sand mats and popped the whole thing up on 3M foam squares. But before that, I stuck a short length of 1 1/2" ribbon under it. A few flat back gold beads fill some of the "open" space and it's done! Simple and elegant, I think. Can't go wrong with that, can you?

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!
