Family Legacy and a Sketch Challenge

I hope everyone is staying well during these times. I have been working on catching up on some projects around our house as well as with my Close To My Heart business while practicing social distancing. I have been wanting to showcase the March Stamp of the Month - Family Legacy - for awhile and finally had a chance today to create a card today using some of the Featured Paper for the month of March - Yesterday & Today - along with the stamp set.

This card follows this weeks sketch challenge #428 from Freshly Made Sketches. You can find the sketch along with other card makers variations on this sketch here.

I changed the sketch a bit in that I added an additional banner strip next to the sentiment. I worked with the patterned papers from the Yesterday & Today paper pack along with Espresso cardstock, Espresso and Black Exclusive Inks. I stamped the sentiment in Black and the scroll work in Espresso. I also inked the edges of the sentiment banner with the Espresso ink. I used a scalloped circle die along with some gold gems to add something extra to the card.

The Family Legacy set is perfect for scrapbooking or card making. This set of 17 images can be purchased for $18.95 on my website through March 31st or you can get it for just $5.00 with a $50 purchase.

If you are interested in this stamp set there is still time to get it. Click here to head on over to my website and see this stamp set today!

I hope you like the card. Thanks for stopping by.
