Thank you / 2 Sketches 4 You

Hello everyone!  It is Thursday already.  I can't believe it.  We are moving in 3 weeks and I have't packed anything.  Nothing!

I made a card for the bonus sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You.  I got this new DCWV Linen Closet paper at JoAnn's last night and started making cards right away.  I didn't expect to like it this much.  The colors are so soft and it has great looking textures to it.

Cardstock: PTI/Vintage Cream
DP: DCWV Linen Closet
Stamps: PTI/ Big and Bold Wishes
Ink: PTI/ Aqua Mist, Dark Chocolate
Felt flower: Spellbinders, button, and floss
Crystals: Me and My Big Ideas
Seam Binding:/ Memrie Mare Etsy shop
Scalloped Oval: Spellbinders

Betsy Veldman's Challenge

I was doing my rounds of new posts and saw Betsy Veldman has a challenge going on at her blog.  This is one of many she will have so hurry up and go see for yourself.  The challenge was to create a card using one of 9 techniques.  I chose to emboss because I love the way it looks and I almost always forget to use my embossing folders.  I need to make that a priority from now on.  It makes everything just pop with texture.
I also stapmed one of the butterflies on an old piece of sheet music and then cut it out and spritzed it with Wheatfields Glimmer Mist...which  BTW is the best color for making things look aged without overdoing it.

Cardstock: PTI/ Vintage cream
DP: DCWV/ Linen Closet
Ink: PTI/ Aqua Mist, Dark Choclate
Stamps: Autumn Leaves/ Journal & PTI/ Butterfly Dreams
Cricut: Tags, bags, boxes(tag)  & Indie Art (butterfly)
Other: Crochet Lace, Seam Binding. Flowers, Old sheet music, Prima flower, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Wheatfields Glimmer Mist, PTI buttons

Thanks so much for stopping by
I appreciate all of you!
