Good morning peeps... is everyone out there staying warm? I'm not doing such a good job. Right now I'm wearing enough layers of clothing to be classified as an abominable snowman! As for the SuperBowl... NO NO NO!!! Sorry to say I belong to the handful of people who does not like football. I know, right? The horror! Besides, I've got way too much to get caught up on.
Yesterday my computer didn't like me and would let me online, so I'm getting caught up now. Did you all participate in yesterday's Blog Skip over at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps blog? Wasn't it fantastic? And oh my, so much talent and inspiration. You can still skip around to the blogs by clicking here. Today the new Sketch Challenge is up on OWH and you can click here.
I went clean and simple... sort of, for my card. I really liked it at first but now the background looks a little naked. I should have embossed that piece of rose paper, or used Versa Mark Ink and stamped a pattern. I used black to mat my papers and give them some pop. I tweaked the sketch a little but all the main elements are there.
The center panel is an embossed tag from Heidi Swapp. The tags come with clear embossing on them. I spritzed the tag with Heidi's Color Shine Irridescent Spritz called Primrose. The spritz doesn't stick to the embossed design. When you wipe the excess spritz off the pretty design shows as white. The other papers are from Authentique's 6x6 paper pad called Lovely. Some black gems and twine finish it off.
Here's the sketch for this week.
That's it for me. I have to go get caught up on the Blog Skip and leaving love for the participants. Thanks so much for stopping by... hope you enjoyed yourself!
