SFYTT - Refuge & Strength



This is for Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try - SFYTT for today. I have had this set called Refuge & Strength from SU for a few months and I thought it would be perfect for this sketch. This was another fun sketch to play with today.

I started with a Bravo Burgundy card base and then I matted a piece of designer paper from the Parisian Summer pack with a piece of Pink Pirouette for the background piece. I stamped the main image in Bravo Burgundy and did the cross in the background with Pink Pirouette stamped off once before applying to the main image. The main image and the background piece have both been pierced with SU's Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. I used three Build-a-Brads with designer paper punched also from the Parisian Summer designer paper pack. It's finished off with some Non SU Pink Grosgrain Ribbon.

I'm getting ready to go eat Valentine's dinner with my hubby. Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's day and that the rest of your weekend is great. My son is off from school for Winter Break and does not go back to school until Wednesday. This is the first time I have been able to stay home with him during the Spring because I had been working in public accounting since he started Kindergarten. I am now a SAHM and really enjoying the extra time that I am getting to spend with him this Winter/Spring.

Thanks for coming by to check me out.

Pam, this is so pretty! Lovely choice of colors and stamps. Wasn't that a great sketch? I used to be in accounting also (for a bank and I worked with the public accountants very closely) and know about month-ends, year-ends, and tax season! Enjoy your time with your son!
