"Always" by Suzanna Lee
Supply List - Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned paper, Stickers and Alpha Stickers: EchoPark; Ink: VersaFine (Tsukineko); Stamp: Unity; Mist: Smooch; Digital Element: Self-made

Variation 1: Clearly, this is a layout and not a card. Clearly, not surprising that I automatically saw a layout when I saw the sketch! You know me, you know my aversion to cards!

Variation 2: My vertical strips are a 1/2 inch wide as that was better suited to the layout width. Instead of straight stitching, I used a zig zag stitch.

Variation 3: The message block became my journaling block. Not wanting to cover my picture, the journaling block is semi-tucked behind the picture instead.

Variation 4: The square is my picture. I wanted to highlight the picture against the busy background and so chose to mat the picture.

Variation 5: I have a splattering of elements here and there instead of the trio of butterflies.

WOW ladies, these are great!! I love seeing this sketch as a card and layout, it really suits both ways. How fun the stitching is on both of them.

Suzanna, laughed about your aversion to cards, that is me also. I keep trying to make them but end up frustrated and put it away. Who knows maybe one day it will happen.
