Prayers for Ukraine

It's new sketch time at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.                My card is inspired by the colors of Ukraine's flag and their national flower.

My design team inspiration for you uses an older sunflower stamp that was colored with alcohol markers, and a number of tiny sentiments from various sets from Simon Says Stamp and one from an Altenew set. I tried to choose sentiments that expressed concern and support for Ukraine.  They were stamped in Whisper ink on the panels I had ink blended with Blue Raspberry, Wild Dandelion, and Sweet Mango from Gina K. I popped the panels with foam tape, and the fussy cut flower was also popped up with foam tape. Some waxed twine was twisted to resemble leaves for that element of the sketch.

I hope you will be inspired to be crafty and link up to the challenge HERE.  The team loves to visit your site to see your creations.

I would also like to link this card to Color Hues Challenge - Cards for Ukraine and to

Mod Squad Challenge - Cards for Ukraine. Ink blended with Gina K.

The crafting community is such a wonderful, kind group.  Wish we could channel that loving support to the whole world.
