Playing Catch-UP!

This is for today's use white with one other color... I chose elegant eggplant. I used my craft ink and embossed everything with stardust ep by Stampendous... it really adds a nice sparkle and shine to darker images. I needed two Thank You cards and wanted to be from the same stamp but different.. kwim? So, I went all the way back to the beginning sketch challenges and used SC01 (left) and SC02 (below)... After I made them I had a hard time deciding which way to turn them for the photo, because you can really use them either way. I decided to dot one up and leave the other crisp and clean.. I have to say that after starting the Faith-dots, it is hard to not do it on a card.... I also used my cb folder the bg paper to give it some dimension. It is the textile folder.. I just realized that I forgot to add one of the butterflies that I embossed to the card on the right.. so I will be adding that somewhere - lol.... I guess it is time to clean up my room! Thanks for looking!

I combined this weeks Sketch Challenge with the Ways to Use It, ... also, Anne (aka jdmommy) dared me to make a card with only an umbrella on it, neutrals with one color, and a sentiment. So, I may have violated the "dare" since I have two sentiments, but I'm considering the 'love' as the handle of my umbrella and the rub-on as my sentiment - hope that's ok Anne *wink*... and you didn't say no cuttle bug or dp or fibers.. so I used those also The umbrella is stamped using the paper tole technique, everything is popped up and you can't really tell from the photo, but irl it looks really cool. Thanks for looking.

Beverly I love your purple cards using Essence of Love. I am ordering this set b/c of you so thanks for enabling.

How did you get the tags so long is that a punch or did you do it by hand?

Love it!!!!
