Sorry about being MIA for the last couple of days. I hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was great! Saturday night, DH and I attended the USMC Birthday Ball and it was a blast. General Cartwright, who is the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was our guest speaker and imagine our surprise when we figured out that the head table was right beside ours. Trust me, there is something very humbling about sitting 10 feet away from someone who wears 4 stars on his shoulder and is definitely someone who does a lot of "behind the scenes" stuff for a lot of current issues....but I digress!
I was able to do some crafting; but it wasn't blogging crafting unfortunately, so I tried to play catch up today with the WSC from Beate.
I started with a standard size card base in Brocade Blue and then I added a small layer of Artichoke Print Pattern paper from SU. I added a piece of Bravo Burgundy which I punched the bottom of with my EK Success threading waters punch. Next I ran a piece of Blush Blossom through my CB with the embossing folder. I used my 1 inch square punch for the Brocade Blue squares at the bottom and then added 7/8 squares in the Artichoke Prints Pattern on top of them. I added each one of those squares to the strip of Bravo Burgundy at the bottom. The sentiment is from SU's "Best Yet" stamp set. I used SU's "Lots of Tags" Sizzix four pack of dies for the label behind it. I know that normally I try to take measurements and I did in the beginning and I even wrote them down; but then I changed them and didn't write down the new ones!
Anyhow, that's all for me today. Have a great evening!
