Your Kindness

Yesterday I finally got a chance to do Mercy's sketch . I used the Thankful Flourishes set from Our Craft Lounge. I stamped the flower from the set in Plum Pudding ink on Plum Pudding cardstock. After I cut out the flower, I sponged and curled the edges and added this neat (and huge) button to the center. I also used one of the embossing folders from the Iron Works Cuttlebug folder set. I thought the embossed flourish went well with the whole card.



Another sketch I was able to participate in lately was the August Sketch Challenge over in the Our Craft Lounge forums. I used the Witch to Wear set from Our Craft Lounge. I covered the "cape" in Christmas Red Stickles and the boots with some Crystal Effects to give that patent leather look. It makes a great Halloween outfit, huh? LOL I also used the Haunted Halloween Cuttlebug folder on the base of the card, so there's a Haunted House in the background in case you didn't notice.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you're having a great weekend!
