I had scrapbook club/crop at my house last night (Saturday) and we had fun creating. Finally, I am caught up with this week's sketch challenge for Stampin' Christmas All Year Long.
Connie, you can quit asking me if I am caught up now! Thank you!
This sketch is from challenge #9 (03-23-09) and my card is below. I am not thrilled with how that one turned out, but sometimes I need to just go to the next one.
I felt like embossing on both of the cards I made last night. For the first one, I used clear embossing powder and then sponged ink (tulip, olive and vineyard berry) over the image to match the pattern paper.
Here is the sketch for challenge #10 (03-30-09). I wanted to use non-traditional colors on this card. I traded my friend Terese some cards for embossing powders. I used the light blue powder and love the way this looks. I have so much paper and one of my resolution's this year to use what I have. So I grabbed paper from Level 2 packs I purchased already. The pattern green paper is from Emporium and the pattern blue paper is from Stardust.
