Sentimental Sundays #9: Encouragement and Support


Sunday means it is time for another great challenge from Sentimental Sundays! This week's challenge (#9) is to create an Ecouragement/Support card that incorporates a sentiment.


The sentiment for today's card is from Cornish Heritage Farms' Motivational Centers stamp set. To add some emphasis to the sentiment, I placed three gems under the "never, never" part. The adorable image is a new digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles called Sitting Dottie.


I colored Dottie taking inspiration from the patterned paper I placed inside of the clear card blank. This is from a paper stack I won as a member of Colorbök's Bok Club. From time-to-time I am sent links to surveys on upcoming designs and occasionally we are given goodies just for participating. A win-win if you ask me. :)

To see what the rest of the Sentimental Sundays Design Team has created for the new challenge, you can either visit the challenge post or stop by their individual blogs which are linked to the left.
