Hi stampers! I realize my posts have been sporadic but I hope to get back on track soon. Working 43 hours last week in a cold room standing all day wore me out more than I thought! We also had a death in the family and that has taken some of my time as well. I hope that you are having a terrific week to make up for mine!!
I did manage to get to scs this morning and make a card for both the color and sketch challenges of the week.
Card recipe: all items from Stampin' Up!
stamps: Balmy Breezes (retired)
cs: very vanilla, old olive, rose red, more mustard designer series paper
ink: old olive, rose red, more mustard
accessories: gold brads
technique: I distressed the edges of the palm tree, the rose red, and the green mat pieces with the SU distressing tool. I also sponged more mustard and rose red on the edges of the palm tree piece. I sponged rose red on the edges of the circular pieces which I cut with the coluzzle.
I hope you like the card. I would truly love to be somewhere with palm trees right now!
Thanks for stopping by! Tasha
