Hi Everyone!

Wow, this card totally looks better IRL. Sorry about the less than stellar photo quality. I used an old sketch in my book for this card. I started with a Sage Shadow base and then added a layer of Cameo Coral on the left side. The background pattern is from Martha Stewart and I embossed it with Versa Mark and Clear Embossing Powder. For the main image, I used Upsy Daisy from SU which I inked first with Sage Ink and then rolled the edges in Not Quite Navy Ink: the rock n' roll technique. I layered it with NQ Navy and Coral. I cut a square of Sahara Sand paper and then used my Fiskar's Threading Waters edge punch on the bottom. I ran a piece of sheer Organdy ribbon along the side for an added piece of interest. Of course I had to find a way to add the white stitching, so I did around the outer right side.
That's all for me today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day.
