Paper Smooches SPARKS Sept. Designer Drafts challenge

Hello, friends:}

Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! The second week of the month is always a DESIGNER DRAFT challenge. 




This week we are inspired by the following sketch:
Ok-- I just want you to know that I realllllllllly tried to follow this sketch! I did! But since we are on vacation and I had to make this before we left... I needed a simple CAS design. So I changed some of this sketch: 1. I didn't use a center panel 2. The polka dots are words and 3. I didn't use a center sentiment on the banner. This is a "Typical Sav" sketch... so that shouldn't surprise you:)

I created this card for my Mom's friend/co-worker. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer (not sure which one... but I figured a pink card would be ok for any type). She really needs to be lifted up, so I wanted to give her a card using my FAV Paper Smooches stamp set, Hope. I also used the PS Hope die along with the Streamers die and coordinating stamp set. And the sentiment is from the PS Spiritual Sampler set. LOOOOOOVE how this turned out! **If you have time, please pray for Bev and her family. THANK YOU!!!!!!!! 
That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs, get inspired, and leave them some love

TOTALLY praying for Bev; let her know I'm sending them on angel's wings so they'll arrive in super speed! Your card is FABULOUS - design-wise (love Savannah-style cards1), but especially 'essence' wise! You'll definitely uplift Bev's spirits. Faith, Hope, Love, Prayer - the greatest gifts of all!!
