Tuesday Morning Sketches #348

Good Morning!  Thank you for stopping by.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this is another great one by Debbie.  I had a lot of fun with it and I'm sure you will, too.

Our sponsor this week is Patti and she's giving away a super cute stamp set called Balloon Animals that would be so much fun to play with!

My card today is my attempt at elegance in a simple way.  Black, white and silver.  My card features Minc designer paper by Heidi Swapp.  I got it on clearance at Michaels for $1.99.  There are some great patterns in this pack.

The background is embossed with Stylized Flowers embossing folder by Cuttlebug.  The strip, which I lost most of detail, is black and white stripe that I made.  I foiled the toner paper with silver and it's really pretty in real life.  Then I cut a tag using my Cameo and heat embossed the sentiment (Raisin Boat) and flowers (Sweet n Sassy) in silver.  I finished it off with a pewter pearl and black satin ribbon.

Here's a close up of the designer paper - it's so pretty! I used ThermoWeb Deco Foil in silver and my Sovereign laminator.  I'm still  talking myself out of getting an actual Minc.  They are on sale (or at least have been) at JoAnn's for $49.99 which is really good.  But I keep reminding myself that I still have to pay for senior photos, banquet, prom beauty day, prom shoes, the last dance team tuition and a graduation party.

Thank you again for your visit.  Please head to TMS blog to play along and be sure to visit the DT, too.  Have a great day!!

Wow! I love this! The black/white combo is so elegant, and of course, I love both kinds of embossing! :)
