Color Throwdown #99 and Card Patterns Sketch 70












I made this card for Color Throwdown #99. When I saw LeAnne's card, I remembered that I had this stamp from Prickley Pear and have not used it. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.
The base card is SU turquoise. I used a jel pen to go over some of the flowers in the stamped image. It isn't excatly the same turquoise, but I like the effect it added to the image. I used a CB folded called Morrocan Screen, and one of Tim Holtz's EF called Patchwork. The ribbon and old buttons are from my stash. The hardest part was the scalloped edge. I used a SU boarder punch. I need to look through my Cricut cartridges to see if I have one that I can use to make scallop rectangles. I will be checking on that.

I used the sketch from Card Patterns Sketch 70. There sponser this week is Gina K Designs and she has donated a beautiful stamp set. You know how I love my Gina K stamps. I haven't been using them much lately. I must have too much stuff and not enough stamping time.

The inside of the card is stamped with another Prickly Pear stamp. It is so true. Life is so much easier with a friend by your side. I am so thankful for all my dear friends. This includes all my new online friends. In the past year I have made some very special friends on line that I have never met in person. They have become very close and have added a lot to my life. I hope I have done the same in return.

I met my DH on line. But that is another story.

Hugs to all,

Thanks for stopping,
