Note of Thanks

Okay, so I shouldn't be deciding at 10:00 at night..."Oh, maybe I should quickly do a challenge before I go to bed"...when I should already be in bed reading. But, I did this in half an hour....fairly happy with it....and here it is.

Today's challenge was to combine a Technique Challenge, Colour Challenge and Sketch Challenge....but they had to be from the first 10 published from each set. So, I incuded Technique #1 which was kissing. I Kissed the emblem from Carte Postal onto the small writing piece from Elegant Notes...does it count even if you can't actually read the writing?
The colours are from Challenge #5 - Black and White and this is a bit of a stretch on the #9 Sketch Challenge.

I've also included the Faux Linen for the "Stamp Something" challenge this week. I love that technique.

I'm pretty happy considering it was a rush job. I'll concentrate more tomorrow....
Thanks for dropping by....Happy Stampin- Joan

This is so elegant! I love it and your techniques were great choices! I'm glad someone besides me gets an idea in their head at "bedtime." Of course, after the kids are in bed seems to be the only time I get in my stamp room!

I love how this turned out. Great job on the linen effect- it seems much more dramatic on your monochromatic card.
