Tuesday Morning Sketches #470

Hello! Thank you for stopping by. The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a really fun one.  There's also a really fun prize up for grabs, too.  You'll have to go over to the challenge blog though to see what it is!

My card this week features the August Small Die from Spellbinders.  This is a fun set - some cute little birds and viney leaves and the most adorable little flower.  I'll be playing with this one for a little while - I am skipping September.  I didn't like the Halloween theme with little ghosts and stuff.  I really like dies to be a bit more year-round functional.

The paper I used came in the Simon Says August kit.  I just loved it and wanted to make sure it got enough surface action.  I took a strip of black card stock and I actually meant to emboss that before adhering to the paper but I forgot, so I did dots of white Nuvo drops instead.   I think I'd still prefer it to be embossed but it is what is.  I just the vines, flowers and bird out of white card stock and then used Oxide inks to color them.  I am really loving the little blenders I picked up.  Made coloring the bird and flowers so easy!

My card is a simple notecard and is already off to one of my favorite young lady who is going through a rough patch but she is strong - she will come through it well and wiser.

Please head on over to the blog to join us.  Be sure to visit the design team blogs, too.  They'd love to hear from you.
