Wishing you all the best today and always

Haven’t made a card in a couple of weeks, I feel so rusty!!  I noticed the deadline for the Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab World “I’m craving navy” was due tonight at midnight so thought I better get crackin.  To give me a mojo boost, I turned to the sketch below from Sketchbook Saturday.



The picture quality itself isn’t the absolute best, but that’s what I get for finishing this at 11pm and photographing, so I hope you will ignore that and focus on the card itself.  Several things I like about this card – I immediately fell in love with the water colored ombre background.  Legit watercolor, I’m talking some Windsor & Newton up in here!  I adhered that to a kraft base, so this makes my first kraft card (um, made from actual kraft cardstock, not a recycled bag.  ahem.).  The florals are a stunning set designed by the lovely Dawn McVey with Papertrey Ink.  A bit of wrasslin’ around to get perfect layered stamping – but once you get it you got it and the results speak for themselves.  The sentiment shows up light here, white embossed to mimic the little white Studio Calico punched anchors.  Some enamel dots finish ‘er off!

Hope you enjoy, thanks for visiting me so late – *yawn* I’m off to bed!
