SCS Sketch CHallenge - SC233

Hi Friends!! Hey. . .I participated in another challenge on SCS! Whoohoo! This was actually yesterday's challenge but I was too busy to create a card until later in the evening so I decided to just post it today. I followed the SCS Sketch Challenge - SC233. It was a simple sketch so I decided to play along!

This time II decided to create a non-cutesy card. I used the SU Hostess set "A Little Somethin'". This is the first time I've inked this set. I've had it for a few months now. My goal right now is to use the Stampin Up stamps that I haven't inked. . .which by the way is a lot!

Today is going to be another busy day. Gotta continue cleaning the house for my daughter mini graduation get together with her friends on Saturday.

My daughter and I rearranged my daughter's room yesterday. . .ugggh! That was a monumental task. . .she, I hate to say it, can be very messy. Her room was a disaster! I've been begging her to clean it but she kept ignoring me so I came up with the bright idea of rearranging her room. . .and it worked. She loves the way her room looks and I got her to clean and organize her things! Yipee!



Anyway. . .now to my card. I heat embossed the heart images with a cranberry colored emobssing powder. The leaves die cut is by Sizzix and I embossed the background with my CB embossing folder. That's about it. . .very simple.

Anyway. . .I'll try to squeeze in some card time later today. Maybe. . .I'll participate in another challenge!

Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!

Maria, very gorgeous card. You can make any image look so nice. I love the deep, rich color here and that leaf just adds that special touch. You always add dimension to your cards and this is something I have to work on... maybe I'm too lazy to add layers, but you do and it really looks great. What a wonderful Mom you are ... cleaning so your daughter can have her grad party at your home. She will always remember the nice things you do for her. Hey, I saw the card tote Kristine made with YOUR tutorial and it is awesome. You did a great job and that project is on my list! Hugs, Cami
