Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge 129

I was blurfing yesterday and one of my favorite blogs is the Stars and Stamps/Operation Write Home blog.  This challenge originated Sunday but I liked the sketch and gave it a try....


I used some DCWV white core card stock and a Cuttlebug Embossing folder.  Of course, I sanded to bring out the design.  I had fun picking the colors... kinda different, huh!


The text is from a The Angel Co. set called Label Lingo.  Since the embossing was of buttons I added coordinating real ones on the ribbon under the text.   To see some really cool cards using this sketch just click on their blog name!

Love the choice of colors. So sad that Angel Co no longer exists. They had some great stamps.

Like the colors and how sanding brings out the embossed details.

Cute card. I like your idea of sanding it does highlight the embossing. Adding the buttons by the sentiment was also a nice touch. Thanks for your inspiring ideas.
