SC181 and CC171 Always

Hi guys!

I decided to take a break from craft show preparation, and get in a couple challenges over on (I was having challenge withdrawal)

I combined 2 challenges today-- the sketch and color challenges. The colors for Tuesday were kraft, soft sky, and basic black. I used kraft for the base, and stamped Baroque Motifs in the corners. Next I matted some soft sky DP with black, added ribbon and adhered it to the base. I embossed the Always heart with black diamond EP twice, cut them out and attached to 2nd panel. I added the Bloomin Beautiful rose (one of my faves), which I stamped twice, cut out some petals on one and attached them to the other with dimensionals. I added Stickles for a little bling. I then stamped the sentiment with black ink. Finally, I embossed the Always title on kraft, punched it out with a 1 3/8" circle punch and adhered it to my card with dimensionals.

I got on a roll last night for the craft show, and this is a really great break from that!

Okay, it's almost time to get ready for my son Ryan's HS graduation--WOW!! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the day, and don't forget to smile a lot:):):):)
