2 Sketches 4 You #31



Only one more day to the work week for me!! Woot! Woot! Hope all is going well for all of you. I don't usually have time to craft during the week with 11 hour days....but 2 Sketches for You is having the most generous blog candy this week ...I just HAD to enter!! It is $100.00 worth of Just rite stamps!!! Can you even believe it??
This card is my entry:

For my materials I used SU pink & white paper , with a touch of black velvet ribbon. (one of my fave color combos)cuttlebug for the embossing, nesties to cut the circle & marvey giga punch to punch the pink scallop circle. The center stamp is from Just Rite Stamps. The Rhinestones are from my local SB store. Let me tell you those little buggers were a pain to put on!!! don't think I will be doing that again anytime soon!!! Finished it off with a strip of pink satin ribbon & the black velvet. OH & I used one of my fave new EK success punches for the side boarders...don't you just love those!!! they punch so nicely :) Well that is it for this post as I am TIRED!!! Thank you for your visit :)
