I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Sparkle & Cheer

Hey friends,

It's another rainy day here in So Cal. It's a good thing! This morning we went to breakfast early, then after we came home, I got busy to make my Merry Monday card for this week. Leslie has a very pretty color combo this week of white, aqua and silver.

I started with the Sweet Sunday Sketch 208. The TE wreath is stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with silver EP. I colored the balls with various BG Copics and a silver metallic pen. The wreath base is colored with my silver Spica glitter pen, hopefully it looks like silver toile material. The  background white paper is SU shimmery white paper that is embossed with a Spellbinders impressions plate. The greeting is embossed with the silver EP. 

Here is the simple inside:

Stamps: Taylored Expressions Wreaths Of Joy and Sparkle and Cheer sets
Paper: SU Bermuda Bay, SU Whisper White and Shimmery White card stocks, X-Press It Blending and SU silver glimmer paper
Ink: Versamark, Copics, Spica glitter pen
Other: Spellbinders snowflake impressions plate, TE small scalloped border die, TE wreath die, SU and Fiskar's corner rounder punches, SU silver EP, heat tool, Lawn Fawn sequins, the Big Shot and dimensionals

Have a great weekend. We are expecting rain all weekend and as I said earlier, It's a good thing.
