STAMPlorations sketch #8 (SSS)

Happy St. Patrick's Day to ya, but I'm gonna go all pink on your here. The fun sketch for challenge #8 over at STAMPlorations looks like this.

And the recently--released MOM Subway Stamps look like this.

Put 'em together and whaddya get?

I used the stamp pictured in the lower left corner and "freestyled" my BG with Grapefruit pigment ink from Amuse Studio, stamping it once this way, then that way, then upside down... freestyle, ya know? And then I used PP to follow the sketch. Heat embossed my sentiment onto vellum and layered that on top of the bottom PP strip.

I used the stamp as a block, but you could cut the sentiments apart - versatile, eh? - and there are so many wonderful sentiments in the five sets.  Take a closer look at all the MOM sets and see if some of the sentiments "speak" to you.  TIP:  These don't have to be for Mother's Day cards.  If you notice, my card is basically of the specifically-for-Mom-but-generic-thinking-of-you variety.  So I'm also joining the challenge for Mom cards at Simon Says Stamp.

The winner gets to pick 3 DIGITAL products from the shop -- any combination of printable sheetsPhotoshop templates, and digital paper packs.
