Can You Case It #128, A Sketch Challenge

I am so glad that you are visiting my blog.  WELCOME AND I HOPE YOU RETURN!   This week at Can You Case It, we are having a sketch challenge.  I knew right away which stamp I was going to use for the bottom of this card.  It is a stamp I recently purchased from the Great Lakes Megameet this past May 2016 in Novi, Michigan.

Our country has been experiencing some troubling, sad times recently.  The world has been experiencing troubling, sad times as well.  All the violence has taken its toll on me.  I wanted to create an uplifting, inspirational card.  I worry every time my eldest son, sets foot out our door.  I have told him what to do if ever he were to be pulled over.  I just pray that he will be safe.

Check out the inspiration:

The large stamp at the bottom of card is called dragonfly collage (Technique Junkies).  The sentiment stamp is from vintage scripture (Unity Stamp Co).  Archival black ink (Stampin' Up) was used for the collage and the sentiment.  The collage was colored with various dimensional paints and sprays from Art Anthology.  Thanks for taking a look!  Please leave a comment; they really make my day.  I hope to see you again next week.  I hope my card has given you some inspiration.  Until next week,  Dawn
