Fresh Elements

It's almost the weekend!  I'm rather excited!  I've been MIA most of this week.  My husband was away, my youngest decided that napping wasn't for him and by the time they were in bed at night, I was too tired to even think!

This week's sketch challenge on Freshly Made Sketches was a bit more of a challenge.  I actually made two cards for it but the first one I did for a customer and forgot to take a picture before I packaged it up to mail out!

It's hard to see in the picture but I used clear embossing powder on the stamped image just to make it stand out a bit more.  I also have embossed the black strip of cardstock using the Finale Press Embossing Folder.  THe edging on the vanilla cardstock is done using the new Edgelits die from the Occasions Mini Catalogue.  I am a texture person and tend to go overboard!

I've been lacking inspiration the last few days but hopefully it will start to pick up as the weekend draws closer!

I will be back tomorrow with another card.  I tackled the CAS challenge on Splitcoaststampers this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
