Finally a card....

I thought I would come back from CHA so filled with inspiration and ready to stamp masterpieces....well in reality my mojo left and I was not inspired at all. This is the third version of this card:( This is for MFT 40th sketch challenge which is so graciously hosted by Cindy Haffner every week. I also wanted to get a little dirty so I used vellum to play along with Lauraly's challenge. This card is really straightforward. I stamped the image on cream cs and then paperpieced the dress from the decorative paper and added a little shading with a chocolate chip ink pad and a blender pen. I embossed the vellem cs with my Cuttlebug and sponged on some chocolate chip ink. The flower button brad is from Deja Views. Please let me know if you need any additional info about this card.

On Saturday morning while walking over to the convention center I noticed someone bouncing along ahead of me and thought, "That looks like Stephanie from Homegrown Hospitality". So I sorta called out "Stephanie?" She turned around and looked at me like I was a tiny bit touched:) I told her I recognized her from her blog and could I please have a picture. She is just an adorable person and it was so fun to get a chance to say hi! (Sandy, I know you are going to see this and say, ohhhhh. But know that I was thinking of you)

Well, I am collecting pictures a few at a time and am waiting for my box of goodies to arrive so I can take some pictures.

Thanks for stamping by!

This is so pretty...I love the softness of the stamped images in the forefront contrasted to the bold flowers of the background.

LOL, oh how funny, and you are so right!...If there were any 2 people I would want to meet, it would be you and Stephanie!
Anyway, your card is really very pretty. Your too hard on yourself! :)
