SC276 & CC266

I have to make this quick, 'cuz I am finishing up our taxes -- Yes I waited until the last minute, dummy me.


Last week I saw this absolutely BEAUTIFUL card that Ann (The Stampin' Schach) created. Isn't it stunning? Well today I CASEd her card for the Sketch challenge and yesterday's Color challenge (Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom, and Close to Cocoa for dessert).

I used chocolate chip on my card, instead of basic black -- I think the black is better, but it didn't go with the color challenge. I stamped the image with Staz On Black and water colored my flowers with markers. I used a little green for the leaves -- I hope it still counts for the color challenge. Can you see the "DP" layer behind my image? I stamped the swirl on Vanilla CS and then embossed it with the new Textured folder from SU. I knew I was going to create my own DP with this embossing folder, but I didn't think about using this stamp until I saw Ann's card. Isn't she a genius? -- Can you tell I LOVE LOVE LOVE this card?

Thanks for stopping by!!
