I decided to soften the sketch by using neutrals and Bo Bunny's World Market Patterned Paper. This provided a surface for a more "sympathy" like card. So not the same as a loved one passed away, more like for a person in a hard period of their life....where hope is still very much a factor. After I did the paper weaving I also stamped the hero arts stamp with sepia ink onto the weaved piece and the base card.
My love for CAS won me over and I finally removed the circle from the sketch. I decided it worked better with the sentiment stamped directly on the card.
Sentiment is by The Craft's Meow: "Once you choose hope, anythings possible."--Christopher Reeve
