MMSC14 Garden Window
Hello everyone! Here is the card I made for the Midnight Madness Sketch 14. Another great sketch girls! I used one of the newly released stamps from Our Daily Bread designs called Happy Birthday. It's such a pretty set and so fun to color!
This card is 5 x 7". I used an embossing template which I got from my local stamp store. It is a Mariannne Design Anja Style Dry Embossing Template. I put it right up against two sizes of Nesties Squares and embossed, then cut out by hand. I put the window topper on a light box to emboss it a little more, as running it through the big shot gave a light impression but not enough. I used Bazzill Textured Green and Pink for my card base and mat. The vine element running horizontally across is an embossed vellum scrap. For the lower horizontal element I used some pretty white lace and sheer pink to green ribbon. The image itself is stamped on Neenah CS with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I added some gem stones and stickles, and used my CB die cuts for the upper corners. The image panel is on dimensionals and then I lifted the butterfly and three of the flowers on dimensionals too.
The MMSC is such a fun sketch! Come join us!!
Now here's a picture I took of my helper I have to work around every day.... this is Ricky, and he's the reason my signature on SCS says "no project is complete without at least one cat hair"! He loves to push my pencils on the floor (which is what he's doing here), and he carries my blending stumps all over the house. My ribbons have to either be taped up on a roll or put away in a closet... too much temptation for him to endure! Oh but he's so sweet... you just have to love him! All 16 1/2 pounds of him! As you can see, he takes up most of my work space! LOL! Acutally, after letting him play a little while I carry him to the day bed in this room, and I have a blanket there that's his... and I put him on that and he'll sleep the rest of the time I'm working. But he has to have his play time first.
