I have had this stamp for awhile and hadn't done anything with it yet. I also wanted to practice my marker watercoloring technique so I stamped 3 images to practice. When I was done I liked the colors and decided I would do something with them and this is what happened. I say what happened because I had no clue what I was going to do and just kept adding stuff. The amazing part is I like it! Usually when I start out with no idea I am not so thrilled at the finish. I used the dotted swiss cuddlebug emboss folder on the three strips of color and the black circles in the center. Then I ran 1/8 inch ribbon down each strip. The tag I cut on my cricut.

I decided this card would work for 2Sketches4U challenge this week. If you haven't done any of there sketches you should. It's fun to play along!

How did she do that?
