How are you all? I managed to post before the last minute rush on Tuesday evening - woohoo!! It's been quite an eventful week/weekend here but I've managed to find some time to sit at my desk...not without an argument I might add though! I lost out on my designated crafting day yesterday for a spur of the moment outing, so today was my turn - between washing and baking of course :)
Today's card used the layout over at Retro Sketches. It's been a while since I used one of their sketches. I love this challenge and how it uses the layouts of previously made cards :) It's a really nice one this week, you should get yourself over there and join in!
Here's my card...
I was in a 'classic' sort of mood when I made this earlier. It's for my Brother and Sister who have this week just moved out of my Dad's house and into a new flat for the first time :) I know it was a big thing for them but I know they're gonna love it!!! My Brother, like myself, particularly loves damask! I particularly love red, black and white and sparkly embossing powder too so here you have it!!
You can just about see the subtle sparkle in this damask embossing - it's so pretty! The stitching is an homage to my Brother's love of tailoring too :) I hope they both like it!! This damask pattern stamp is new to me from WOW! and I LOVE it!! I've not used any of their stamps before and they are fantastic! It gave a perfect impression on the first use - as I now you guys will know, that can't be said for all stamps!
Like I said, this is for the challenge over at Retro Sketches this week. The sketch is...
I've just noticed that I put my little pearls on the sentiment panel whereas the sketch has them just beneath it...ah well, artistic license and all that hey?!! ;)
I hope you've all had/are having a marvelous weekend and I look forward to seeing you back here soon ;)
Thanks for stopping by ;)
