The stamps on this card are reminiscent of DaVinci’s work. It’s a beautiful collection at Seaside Stampin’! Check them out!

The background is a polished stone beauty with green, yellow and tangerine. Great color combo courtesy of the ladies at Creative Sketches.

Sketch from Creative Sketches for CS05 challenge

Such a fun image from Meljen’s digital stamps to combine with this week’s Play Date Cafe’s color challenge to use pale blue, light mint green and beige. That is such a gorgeous color combo for ice cream! Doesn’t it remind you of cotton candy, pistachio, and coffee flavored frozen treats?? YUM!

I enjoyed making a tag bookmark as a change from card making. I used a new Stampin’ Up border punch for one of the first times – don’t the little hearts match the digi stamp well? That ribbon matches EXACTLY!!! Couldn’t believe it when I found it in my stash. Oh, and the eyelet – remember those??? How many do you still have in YOUR stash?? 🙂

Creative Sketches Challenge #CS02

Ok, I couldn’t resist this little guy when I saw him at Meljen’s store. Isn’t he cute?

It seemed to be the perfect image for the Halloween challenge this week (#28) AND using this week’s sketch from Creative Sketches. A match well made!

Couldn’t go wrong with using Copics for coloring and My Mind’s Eye paper for the background.
