Bashful Cocoa

This was for today's Color Challenge on SCS, Bashful Cocoa, to use Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa and Certainly Celery. I decided to use a couple of texture plates today since I don't really use them much. For the card base, I used the Fiskars Waves texture plate, and for the Close to Cocoa piece of cardstock, I used the Sizzix Texturz Wacky Sparkles plate. I sanded both of them to try and bring out more of the embossing. The image and sentiment stamps are both by A Muse. Just a fun, simple card. I was happy I got to stamp today since I've been too busy to keep up with the challenges. I can't complain, though, because we've been a GOOD kind of busy. :) Lots of fun summer outings and time spent with family and friends. Have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- A Muse; Ink- Basic Black; Paper- Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Whisper White; Accessories- Prismacolor markers, Making Memories brads, Fiskars Waves Texture plate, Sizzix Texturz Wacky Sparkles plate, paper piercer, ticket corner punch.

This reminds me of long hot summers. The weather here in the UK has been terrible this summer but your card makes me feel a lot better.
