Certainly Pacific Pool



I got Happy Tuesday mail today....my Stampin'Up! order arrived earlier today than I expected.  I am exercising extreme self control to get a challenge done AND clean up from my technique class before I open the box!

Today I have used the Mojo Monday Sketch and added an element of Embossed Resist which is the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge this week.  

The colours are left over from yesterday's Colour Throwdown - I had one little banner that I didn't use, so I popped it on today - they are the rage right now!  I apologize  for the glare on the flower!  I was more interested in the colours being true.

Well, off to do my chores.  Hope your day is going well.  Thanks for taking the time to visit.
Joan

Perfect stamp for this technique and I love your choice of color. Yes, banners are all the rage and they are so cute. Great layout, too. Thanks for joining us at Hand Stamed Sentiments.

Hello Joan and thanks for adding your gorgeous card to the challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments. I love your use of the Creative Elements stamp set. The large flourish background stamp colored in is so awesome and the embossed flower is fabulous. Smiles, Elizabeth

Well, you DO have a lot of restraint. I tore into my SU box like a madwoman! Haven't used anything yet...ah, well! I love your card! Love that dark flourish against the lighter blue, and your pretty layered butterflies. Thanks for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments! Erika
