Sketchy Time at Heart 2 Heart

Sketches are fun and challenging. Fun because they are new and different and a challenge because there are no measurements just the sketch. This challenge was also fun because you could make a circle card with the circle part or put the circle on a card base.

H2H Challenge with the Card Chatter Adventure

This weeks challenge at Heart 2 Heart is a color challenge. So...using the colors Creme Brulee, Gypsy, and Black I put togehter my Card Chatter Adventure card. Just in case you have not been on my Adventure with the Card Chatter-Sympathy stamp set you can be apart of the adventure Here, Here, and Here.
We all need prayer and this sentiment from Card Chatter-Sympathy gives us the perfect words to share with others. Inside the card reads "that God will keep you in His care."
This color challenge was difficult because I have never tried put these colors together. To soften the Gypsy I used second generation stamping. To soften the black I used it sparingly with the stitching and the sentiment. I do want to say that the design team and the stampers who took the challenge have created the most amazing artwork at Heart 2 Heart. Be sure to visit all week and experience the challenge.
