CPS # 58

I enjoy using sketches to make cards or scrapbook layouts. It takes some of the work off my little brain - if you're over 40 and have children, you'll understand! Card Positioning Systems has weekly sketches on their blog. Head on over and check them out - you can look at all the previous sketches too if you're in need of more ideas.

This week I really liked the CPS #58 sketch. One because it had a large area for stamping, and two because the corners were rounded only at the bottom. The circle accents threw me a little, but I modified that part and voila! I have a card to share.

The stamped images are from the retired SU! set Serene Sunflower. I am in denial over that set being retired - what were they thinking??? It's actually one of my very favorite sets, and there's nothing like it in the SU! catalog now. I mean - they have tons of flowers. Doodled flowers, Roses, Sketches of flowers ... but this set is so different and versatile - I miss it muchly {can you tell?}. The sentiment was partially inked from the Faith & Hope stamp set.

The stamped images are part of a one sheet wonder I made last year. I had just a little less than 1/2 sheet of cardstock left over and it was plenty to make 2 cards. The second card is below and has nothing to do with the sketch.

I love the sentiment on this card. It's one of my very favorites because it is so encouraging. We may not all be as self-sacrificing as Mother Teresa, but we can all make a difference on our own way.

happy stampin'
