Over the Moon

I found a lovely sketch over at Stuck on You sketches, and I had to sit down and give it a try this afternoon.


This sketch was perfect for a Valentine's card that I've been thinking about creating. (Don't laugh - you think about cards, too!)

I pulled out my Avonlea paper packet for this card.  That teal is so pretty, so I ran a piece of it through a script embossing folder to give it a little more depth.  Of course, everything had to be sponged with Slate ink.  The stamp set I used is the January 2012 Stamp of the Month.  One of my favorites for sure and if you have this one in your stash, you may want to pull it out to remember it.  I added a few key embellishments - black tulle, grey sparkles, shimmer trim, and some Maya Road trinket pins.

Keep watching for the next couple of days because I am going to tell you a tiny little bit about the new Spring/Summer Idea Book that goes live on February 1st, 2013.  I'll let you know how you can order during the month of January and get a free gift, too!  Are you intrigued?  Don't forget to stop back!

Such a beautiful card. I love the Avonlea paper. I would never have thought to put the black tulle with it but it is striking!

How beautiful is this card Brenda. My gosh, it mirrors the sketch nearly perfectly - I love it. The black tulle and trinket pins finish it to perfection. Thanks for joining us at SOUS!
