Oh my, this is probably one of the silliest cards I ever made….I wanted to use my new Night Owl DP and the Stamping 411 sketch 163:


but somehow the interpretation just didn’t pan out the way I had planned:


Maybe it’s that Concord Crush cardstock….just can’t quite get on board with that shade of purple.  I didn’t want to cover up any of the design, so I used vellum as my horizontal piece….maybe I should have sponged that as well as the DP.  Oh well……I am thrilled with the new little sparkly brads that are in the Holiday Mini catalog, though:


Well, this is short and sweet….still waiting for DD to have her baby.  Waiting is the hardest thing!!!  But signs are there that it may be soon!  Thanks for visiting today!  If you don’t hear from me for a couple days, you’ll know where I am!

  • Stamps:  All Holidays
  • Paper:  Vellum CS, Concord Crush, Tangering Tango, Perfect Plum, Basic Black, Night Owl DP
  • Ink:  Stazon, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango (for sponging)
  • Acc:  Dauber, Circle Punches, Large Oval Punch, Narrow Black Ribbon, Sparkly Brad, SAMJ, dimensionals

I don't know what you mean about silly, this is terrific! I love that spooky tree and how the paper goes perfectly with the image. Awesome use of velum!

What are you talking about??!! This card is AMAZING! Coloring the corner of the tree paper is a GENIUS way to use this dsp. I have it too and love it but didn't know what to do with it but YOU did. The vellum is the perfect eerie, foggy touch. This is spectacular. Hope DD has that wee babe soon! :-)
