Crafty Secrets Stimulating Creativity Challenge #60

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

We are back from Cleveland Clinic where DH had his 3-line cathater put in today in preparation for his upcoming treatments prior to transplant. So far so good!! The procedure went well and he begins ANOTHER strand of chemo tomorrow. Please keep him in your prayers!! It's going to be a long couple of months.

Anyways, we got home in time for me to get a card put together for today's Crafty Secrets Challenge hosted today by Pammyjo. We have been challenged to make a MONOCHROMATIC card. I chose shades of GOLD for my card. I've used the Crafty Secrets "sew special" stamp set and also their "Earthy" designer paper. I've used a gold Pilot marker to make a border around the designer paper ... which is a nice way to do a thin matting without the bulk. My image was stamped using Versafine Sepia, cut out using Nestabilities and before removing it from the die, I've sponged around with Versafine Sepia and Brillance Gold. I also used the scalloped Nesties for my matt which was cut from Gold Metallic cs. My lace is from "The Paper Studio" ... purchased as Hobby Lobby and the gold ribbon is by Darice. I've used an American Crafts gold glitter pen for the faux stitching on the sentiment and the sentiment is embossed with gold sparkle embossing powder. The charm is from a bargain pack at JoAnn's and the brad is Making Memories.

I hope you enjoyed today's creation and THANKS SO MUCH for being such loyal followers to my blog. Your support means the world to me!! Happy Stamping!!
