TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE

Here it is, Thursday again.....I can't believe it!!! I have to drive to Sacramento today for an appointment (2.5 hours), so this will be a quick post! This is the card I did for Tamara's sketch challenge this week - great sketch, simple but fun! I decided to use my new flower embosslit so I used Riding Hood Red, then covered the die cut in Versamark, added some Iridescent Ice and heat, and voila!! I purdy flower!! The center of the flower is one of our new and very cool corduroy brads, which I love. The sentiment is also embossed using clear embossing! Very simple as I said, but I like how it turned out!! Please make sure you take time to head over to Tamara's and check out what the rest of the DT gals did, they are really talented, and will knock your socks off with their creativity! And, if you decide to play along, make sure you upload your link so we can check out your take on the sketch!!! I will be back tomorrow for Stamp Something Friday - I am hosting, so don't miss it!! And, if you have not registered for my blog candy, you still have time, the post is here, so check it out!! Thanks for stopping by!
