TART AND TANGY SKETCH CARD

Hi all! This will be a quick post as I have to get to the garage sale - whoohoo! I bagged and tagged for two days straight and really cleaned out my stuff! Can you say - 900 sheets of patterned paper - YIKES!! I only know this because I am selling them in bundles of 50...sheesh, and to think, I will probably buy more!! But, it's all good, I know you all have mega stashes too - LOL! Okay, so today my card is based on Tamara's weekly sketch that she posted on Thursday. My official duties don't start until next week but I wanted to do this one anyway - so I did! I used my Tart and Tangy set because I haven't pulled it out in awhile and I thought it was perfect for this sketch. I based the card on the orange image and actually popped up the one on the bottom right corner and added some dazzling diamonds (if you clickon the pic, you can see this better). I had fun with this card with stitching and ribbon - gosh, I love to stamp!! This card is pretty self explanatory so I will leave you the recipe below. Thanks for stopping by, I am off to the sale!
