A Card and a Recommendation

Well....today I got the card created after school...got some cards put into envelopes for people....and now I'm posting...not as late as the other night.

This card is a combination of this weeks Colour Challenge (Very Vanilla, Sage Shadow and Chocolate Chip) and the Sketch Challenge. I used craft ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder with the Tres Chic background stamp. I used Carte Postale again; you can't really see the image on the band that goes across because it's covered up by the chocolate chip taffeta ribbon. I also finally got around to using the idea I've seen of putting small dots underneath the brads....when they're that small it sure is hard to "centre" the brad!!!! I would have liked to have highlighted the word "imagine" somehow...but I guess being central on the card is good enough.

I have to mention Diane's Designs - a blog that I would recommend visiting. I stopped by there yesterday for the first time on Lee's recommendation, and I really like the projects that Diane has shown. She is offering blog candy right now...but if you scroll down there are wonderful cards.

I hope you are having wonderful evening/morning/day....Thanks for stopping by - Joan
