In My Thoughts

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  We didn’t have quite as much rain as was predicted but there is still more to come.  I am just excited that it is supposed to be cooler.

This card is for a sketch challenge at Moxie Fab World.  There are four different sketches and this one is the Shaped Sketch.  I started with a large brown circle and layered a teal doily on top of it.  I heat embossed the edges using Versamark Ink and Gold Detail Embossing Powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I added some light brown angled squares cut out from a section of a Lattice Window Die to divide the doily in fourths.

Using the Versamark and Gold Detail Embossing Powder, I stamped the SNS image, Flowers in the Square, twice on pink, teal, and brown cardstock.  I cut out different parts from all three colors and layered them with foam tape to create the lovely medallion in the center.  I heat embossed the sentiment from the SNS Thoughts Set on pink cardstock and cut it out with a rectangle die and added gold embossing along the edges.  I popped this on the bottom of the card with foam tape, and then used the pink “Square” from the main image to create the decorative layer behind the brown circle.

Have a wonderful week,

E. Marie
