CCEE Challenge


Happy "Over the Hump" Day to you all!!!



Here is this week's CCEE Stampers Blog sketch challenge. This week's hostess is Tosh Leyendekker. If you are not familiar with Tosh's work ... you really MUST check out her blog HERE!! Tosh has offered up a nice basic sketch that you can really have fun with ... as they say, "you can dress it up or dress it down"!!






Here is my card which I chose to dress up a little just by using this lovely vintage designer paper by The Paper Studio. On the horizontal panel I used a scrap of another The Paper Studio dp which I had on my worktable ... only in a different pattern. Over this panel I used a piece of ivory satin ribbon from Hobby Lobby and on top of that, I used SU Purely Pomegranate double stitched grosgrain ribbon. The circle & scallop circles are both cut using my Nestabilities. The rose image if from an Inkadinkado clear set and the little sentiment Thank You is from Flourishes. It needed a little extra something so I added the butterflies which were made using my Martha Stewart butterfly punch.
Please stop back later when I hope to have my SCS sketch challenge and my Color Throwdown cards to share with you. Mark is working from home today. He went into the office yesterday but it was just too difficult since he can all of a sudden just be exhausted. This way, when he gets tired, he can rest for awhile and then go back to it later. Other than that, he's feeling pretty good ... just waiting to hear back from the Oncologist as to the test results from Monday. I will keep you posted.
