Fresh Inspiration

This card was kreated using last weeks Splitcoast Card Sketch (SC191). I inked up the 'vine' from Fresh Cuts set in Versa Mark and stamped it onto Not Quite Navy. Baja Breeze was stamped on twice, vertically, with the background stamp from Fresh Cuts in Not Quite Navy ink. Each piece was distressed along the top edge with a very important tool, my fingernail :) The Not Quite Navy piece was also distressed down the middle of the card. Both pieces were mounted on a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 Whisper White card base. Layered on top, again, distressed Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, and my 'vine' images inked in Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze on Whisper White. The sentiment, from Sincere Salutations, is inked in Not Quite Navy craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. TIP: The easiest way to emboss is to use either Craft Ink, or VersaMark to enable the powder to stick prior to using your heating tool. The sentiment panel is finished off with a small White Grosgrain Ribbon. I'm sending this to a male colleague of my hubby's whose sister just passed. I'm hoping this passes in the masculine department - although I am sending it to he AND his wife, so I'm probably safe. Let me know your thoughts. And if you need inspiration, try out the sketch!
For now, go kreate

I'll be going away for the next few days with my family for our last summer hooray and for my hubby and I to celebrate our upcoming anniversary. I have pre-posted a fun project for you on Friday (as long as there is no glitch and it posts properly - unfortunately I won't have access to a computer) I'll be receiving my goodies from the New catty the end of this week, so hopefully upon my return I'll have some time to stamp and bring you something new next week :)
