Sketch Challenge #238 And Ways To Use It Challenge #228

This is my card for Yesterday's Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoaststampers:

The challenge was to use a charm. I used this charm that is meant for use in making jewelry, I found it at a dollar store, what a find. I love it in the center of my flowers.

This card is also for Wednesday's Sketch Challenge at Splitcoaststampers:

For my image, I used this inspiring July new release SHINING STRENGTH from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS:

For my main panel that the squares rest on, I cut out a piece of acetate (from Clear Dollar Stamps) and rubbed the edges on my Stazon black ink pad, to make it stand out. Then, I wanted to add some color to my squares, but wanted a serene look fitting for the message. So I stamped the words in these colors from the DP and made certain words stand out in black to form the horizontal message that can be read from right to left.

Thank you for visiting me today.
