card sketch #4...

Hope you all had a safe and fun Memorial Day! I'm back with the last card sketch for May. Please link me up if you try the sketches - I'd really LOVE to see everyone's different interpretations of these!

I strayed from the sketch a bit, but that's ok, right? Sketches can be however you interpret them. I used Skipping Stones Design's Stitched Stamps on this card. The flowers in this set inspired me to add stitched flowers instead of hearts. I stamped the flower onto Vintage Cream Papertrey Ink felt and then stitched over the design with pink floss. It's hard to see in the photo, but the pink floss is cute against the white felt!

I topped it with a Melissa Frances resin frame and Melissa Frances pearls.  The white ink is Papertrey Ink's Fresh Snow. The die cuts used here are Turning a New Leaf (pink leaves) and Tiny Tags (heart) by Papertrey Ink. Other: date chipboard - Crate Paper, pink paper - Pink Paislee, pin - Maya Road, text paper- October Afternoon.

Thanks SEW much to Skipping Stones for letting me be a part of their blog this month!

And I have one more giveaway this week, due to mix-up on my part, I have another UPLIFTING stamp set to give away! Please leave a note if you are interested and I'll choose a winner in a few days!

One more thing....if you wouldn't mind checking out my friend Shimelle's blog today, she will be donating ALL proceeds for 24 hours to the Because I am a Girl campaign. What a great cause. 
Let's take care of our girls!

Hi,
As an artist, I want to share with you how we can force the Chinese government to disclose the whereabouts of Artist Ai Weiwei who is imprisoned without charges.
I found a poll on Qwanz.com " Should cultural exchanges between China and the rest of world be boycotted until the whereabouts and charges against Chinese artist Ai Weiwei are clarified?
If we all answer this, share it on Facebook and Twitter, and then , through the site, send on results, to Elected officials, government agencies and the press, we may be able to create together enough noise and pressure to force the Chinese Government to react.
Please click on http://qwanz.com/headline/international-eventually-by-country/should-cultural-exchanges-between-china-and-the-rest-of-world-be-boycotted-until-the-whereabouts-and-charges-against-chinese-artist-ai-weiwei-are-clarified/
Your voice is important. Please help.
Many thanks;
Paul
PS: Don’t forget to share this with all your artists friends
