Encouragement Card for Paper Players Sketch Challenge

Good Friday Morning!

I'm here today with a card for this week's Paper Players Sketch Challenge PP101.

Stamps:   One of Those Days
Paper: Basic Black, Misc DP
Ink:  Memento Black
Accessories:  Black Ribbon, Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Label Punch, SU Pearls

I chose this color scheme based on the theme of the card.  These aren't my typical colors but I really like the contrast of the soft blue and yellow against the grey and black.  I sponged some silver on the white circle.  The bird and cloud are paper pieced.

The most meaningful card I ever got was from my twin sister.  When I was going through a really rough time, my sister gave me a card with an adorable kitten hanging from a tree with the sentiment - hang in there.  I'll never forget that card because it meant so much to me that she cared so much for what I was going through.  I still have that card 15 years later.  That's why I LOVE this stamp set so much.  It means a lot when you can send someone a card of encouragement when they really need it.

 For my card I used the {ippity} set One of Those Days


Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card today!

I can't color to save my life! Great job on the card. One day I am going to try out the paper players, do they ever have non sketch challenges? I stink at sketches too.

Sweet and adorable. I like your post about why you made this card. A sis is there at just the right time and knows just what you need. I think this card will do the same for someone else.
