When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Sweet & Sassy - The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #193

Next project I will be posting is a card I made for sketch challenge at Sweet & Sassy - The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge # 193:

Here's my take:
 It's been 5mons now since we left home and everybody was missing it.  So to channel the sad emotion, I cut out a Texas map using my Silhouette Cameo and made a card out of it.  I used a monochromatic theme - brown.  We used to joke that most of the time, you'll see nothing but yellow, brown or dirt in Texas.  That joke turned into a card... 
One thing is sure, there is more color in Texas than where we are right now.
 The inside... just making use of the scrap patterned paper.
We will be sending this card to a friend/co-worker of my hubby together with some fresh spices...
PAPER: Gina K, DCWV, Stampin' Up! and American Craft {cardstock}, Studio Calico by American Craft {patterned paper}
STAMPS: Flourishes - Cottage Home & On The Porch {sentiments}
INKPAD: Memento {Rich Cocoa}
TOOLS: Silhouette Cameo {electronic die-cut machine}, Spellbinder Grand Calibur {die-cut machine}, MFT Die-namics {retro squares die}, Scoth {ATG}, E-6000 {glue}, Fiskar {paper trimmer} and sponge
EMBELLISHMENT: Making Memories {heart brad}, Basic Grey {half pearls}, Walmart {brown hemp}, flower bead and washi tape.
