From the Heart Stamps I {heart} Sketches with a tWist #114

So for this week's challenge over at From the Heart Stamps weekly sketch challenge, I was able to use some summery ribbon that had been sitting in my ribbon box for quite some time. I tend to buy ribbon when there's a good sale and then forget all about using it! It was great to use some of it for this challenge. I chose 4 summery colors and glue taped them to my 5 X 7 card. Then I sized my digital stamps (the image and sentiment are from the "Lil Birdie" From the Heart digital stamp set), added a frame around them to cut them out, and did a print and cut of them on my Silhouette Portrait. I colored the image and then looked through my Spellbinders dies to find a good size for a mat behind the image and sentiment. I settled on Labels 23. After cutting those mats out on my Cuttlebug, I used glue tape to adhere the green mat behind the image and then foam squares to pop up the image. Inside the card, I used foam dots to pop up the mat and glue tape to adhere the sentiment to the orange mat.

Here's the sentiment inside. I had some small wooden bird embellishments leftover from another project and found one that fit nicely here. I used a micro glue dot to adhere it to the sentiment.
Here's a close-up of the darling digital stamp.
This is good timing for me as I know just the friend who needs some encouragement right now and would enjoy this card. I've always loved Jesus' words in Matthew 10:29-31: "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows."
