It's in the eyes of every child...it's the hope, the love that saves the world...we should never let it go...

Welcome to Sketch Challenge # 102 and to showcase our Featured Stamp Set of the Month, Rustic Tiles! If you just came from Katie's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design.  The entire hop order is there just in case you get lost along the way.

Be sure to hop along and leave comments on all the fabulous designers’ blogs.  This month we are welcoming Jimmi Mayo, Betsy Veldman and Jessica Griffin to our team as Guest Designers!  Chan Vuong will be providing all the fabulous sketch inspiration this month including the sketch we're using in today's hop!


Here's the card I created featuring Rustic Tiles and gorgeous trims and brads from Creative Impressions, who so generously sent us goodies to play with this month!


 I stamped this image in Versamark onto white cardstock, then embossed it in white. After that cooled, I spritzed the entire panel with red Glimmer Mist. Here's a look at some of the shimmer from the mist:


Gorgeous, huh? I stamped the words "I Believe" from Cancer Schmancer across a pretty gold ribbon in black Stazon and layered it onto white twill. A few mulberry flowers finished off the design.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Now it's time to head over to the AMAZING Betsy Veldman's blog for some more Skipping Stones Design inspiration! Have a fabulous day!
