Thinking of You

Thinking-of-You-Siz.Hero

Hello everyone!
Today I have a quick card to share that I made with a Sizzix/Hero Arts stamp/die cut combo pack.  Really cool! All the images have a matching die!  I used the sketch from Tuesday Trio and the color combo from My Partner in Crafting Crime.  My base is SU! Rose Red and the designer paper is BasicGrey Sultry.  I colored these solid images with markers, adding a touch of a second color to the edges of some then huffed and stamped.  I stamped the main flower twice, cutting it out once to pop it up.  I added a touch of blue chalk around the image for the color challenge, then spritzed with Irredescent Gold Glimmer Mist.  I added some SU! grossgrain ribbon and Hero Arts pearls.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Die Cuts, Sarah Hurley Challenges - C10 Use More Than TWO Images, Freshly Brewed -  #70 Anything goes, Stampavie and More - #155 Anything Goes, Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes, Heidi's Hobbystuggu -  cards only - Bling/Sparkle,  Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - (Must use ribbon) - Anything Goes, Make it Monday - always Anything Goes, Crafty Catz Weekly : anything goes,Joyful Stamper : inspire me fridays, Make It Monday : anything, Paper Play Time : anything, Sassy Cheryls : show me something


Thanks so much for taking a peek!

Hi Grace. I'm ashamed I haven't been by in a while. Life is just so busy at the minute and my daughter was just married a few weeks ago. I think I'm still recovering.:)
Love this card today. I bought some of the stamps and dies but haven't really given them a workout yet. Thank you for the inspiration.
