No vampire...just "Bella Rose" paper!!
If you read my previous post you will get the no vampire thing.....
Here is my card for this weeks 2 Sketches 4 You .... fun sketch! I decided to try my new "Bella Rose" paper.
Turning the corner with my new scallop edge punch was tricky...I haven't mastered that yet but the second try on the pink was easier than the brown first try.
I used my polka dots and petals stamp and stamped a flower on the pink pirouette. The pink pirouette ink hardly shows up on the same color paper. It's almost the versa mark effect.

I love this green ribbon. I buy it at walmart. It will go with so many of the greens. I use it with then new kiwi kiss, wild wasabi and then old olive. If you are putting it straight on the color cardstock it's not so good but if you put it like I did it does really well.


Stamps: Polka Dots and Petals, Michaels $1 sentiment
Ink: Pink Pirouette and Close to Cocoa
Paper: Bella Rose DP, pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip
Tools: Scallop edge punch, medium eyelet spring punch and setter, pop up foam dots
Embellishments: Green Ribbon

It's gray and rainy outside...perfect day to stamp! Did I tell you I am off work this week. The office is closed. I won't end up working much in August. I could get used to this. Going to be a killer getting up for work next Monday!

My husband is in the Florida Keys for a business meeting. He has been smack dab in the middle of the storm. Glad it wasn't too bad!!! Hope he can fly home tomorrow. Never a dull moment!

Thanks for stopping by...hope you day is amazing!!!!
