Uplifting Sketch @ The Perfect Sentiment

Hello Everyone! It's Wednesday and time for another challenge at The Perfect Sentiment.

Our sponsor this week is
and she is giving away one free digi to one lucky random winner

The Challenge is to create a card with an uplifting sentiment. (sentiment must be on the front of your card) You can congratulate someone, encourage them to pursue their dreams or goals, etc.
The Twist is to use the following sketch as a basis for your card design.

This challenge is actually perfect timing for me as I have a co-worker/friend who is leaving to go back to school. The decision is bittersweet as I will miss her but I understand her reasoning behind leaving. We are going through a staffing re-model and everyone's job is changing, hours are getting cut, etc. In fact, I'm being transferred to another location. So, the season of change is upon us but fear not, as God has it all in His Master Plan!

My friend's favorite color is purple so, I ended up using this combo I found on the Stampin' Up! Color Coach: Elegant Eggplant, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder. I'm still learning how to use my Janome Sew-Mini so, I hope you will overlook my crooked stitching. The scripture and the stamped flowers are all from Verve Stamps.

Here are a few challenges I would like to enter my card into:

Party Time Tuesdays: Anything Goes
Ribbon Carousel: Anything Goes 
Shopping Our Stash: Circles or Dots (patterned paper)
Use It Tuesday: Un-Inked Stamps (Verve flower stamps)
Make It Monday Linky Party 
Stampin' Sisters in Christ: Opposite of CAS 
Craft Room Challenge: Bling/Glitter/Sparkle (Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Liquid Pearls)
Cheerful Stamp Pad: Anything Goes
Lollipop Crafts: Anything Goes 
Make My Monday: Spring/New Life or Beginnings (flowers for spring, scripture for new beginnings)
