SBS sketch challenge

One of my dear SBS2 blogging sistahs has posted a layout challenge over on the SBS cafe. Maria is an awesome stamper and has some really great layouts posted on her blog. This one was perfect for a card that I needed. My sister has a friend that is a breast cancer survivor and she asked me to make a card for her. Her friend will be visiting her in Kauii next month so I immediately went to my Seaside Sketches. I love this image from that set. I stamped her in black stazon and watercolored her using PPomegranate, CChip, BBlossom. I then sponged shades of blue going from lightest to darkest, starting close to the image and going out. I then embossed the image using several layers of UTEE . I love this technique. I added some texture to the white panel using my cuttlebug and a Fiskars template. I'm not sure of the designer of the DP as I used scraps. I used Pretty In Pink to symbolize Breast Cancer Awareness. I hope she likes it!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Nice job! I really like the colors you used here. The soft look reminds me of a down blanket.
