{WSC #94} Good Works . . .

. . . are links that form a chain of love. ~ Mother Teresa

Isn't this a unique layout? It's by the one and only Beate at Fresh and Fun for her Weekend Sketch Challenge #94.

Honestly, I wasn't too sure about this sketch when I first saw it, but it has grown on me and now I really like it! What I especially like is that it is something different from the norm.

The card is a 5-1/4" square of natural cardstock, layered with a scrap of rustic rust colored designer paper. The stamp set I've used is "Inspired by Nature" by Stampin' Up! I colored directly on the stamp with my Stampin Up watercolor markers and spritzed it with a fine mist of water before stamping onto the natural cardstock.

I distressed the edges of the image with Versafine Vintage Sepia and layered it onto a piece of summer sun cardstock. Under that is a piece of textured brown cardstock that I did a quick little random stitching on before adhering to the card. This terrific quote is from the same set, stamped in chocoloate chip. Then I added a little clippy, eyelet and ribbon to jazz it up a bit!

What do you think? Wouldn't you like to try this sketch challenge too? You can! Just blog on over to Beate's blog for all the deets! :)

As always, I thoroughly enjoy your comments and thank you for stopping by today! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask and I'll try to answer via my next post.
