uplifting...

Hi there! I have another giveaway to share with you today brought to you by the lovely ladies at Skipping Stones Designs!
For the month of May, I am guest designing for Skipping Stones and providing their team with card sketches, so each Tuesday check back for a new card sketch by me! Here is this week's sketch:
And here is my take on it....

I used the Skipping Stones' Uplifting stamp set, which I had a blast with. Isn't it fun? I stamped the balloons onto patterned paper and cut them out. The "hills" were stamped over the card after adhering the tags. I love the saying, "Lifting you up in prayer."

Would you like to play along? We would love to see what you can come up with! Add your card HERE. And for another chance to win here on my blog, please visit the Skipping Stones Designs shop and simply tell me what your favorite 2 stamps sets are! I will choose one winner to receive the "Uplifting" stamp set!

Supplies used: October Afternoon paper (blues and text), My Mind's Eye paper (red plaid), red cardstock, Crate Paper - Restoration (yellow), sewing pins, twine from the Twinery, Enchanged Evening ink (blue) by Papertrey Ink, green cardstock by Papertrey Ink, scalloped scissors, round scallop punch by Martha Stewart.
