Thank You for CTS46 and Muse35

Saturday, September 21, 2013

Friday was the last official day of my vacation (I don't count Saturday or Sunday because I have those days off anyway), so I decided to celebrate by taking a little trip to Michael's, Super Joann, and Marshall's.  It was a good day because I managed to buy something at each store!

At Michael's I got a new stamp set and inked it up for the sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch and latest Muse challenge.



For the Muse challenge I was inspired by the background stamp, which created such lovely texture, and by that big, beautiful flower.  For my card I created some texture with the grungy dotted stamp, then stamped a flower over it in Rose Red (which also echoes the colors of the Muse challenge).  Finally I added a sentiment stamped in black.

I've got a busy day today capped off by an art show reception tonight at Borderland State Park (if you live in the neighborhood you should stop by and say "hi")!  But I hope to be back in the old craft cave on Sunday to get ready for a busy stamping week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Agapanthus Thank You (Stampendous); Textures 2 (Florileges Design)
