Can't get enough of.....

This beautiful textured DP from SU. I love the colors, the designs and the texture. I love that you can use a distressing edger and the sponge color on the rough edges to look like the inside is color tinted to the rest of the front. I will definitely be stocking up on alot more of this soon because it is made with an in color so it will be gone this summer I bet.

I made this card this card for Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch challenge, TSSC63. I think this sketch was my favorite so far. I think it has so many possibilities, for beautiful cards. The oval in the center was made with Rubber Stamp Tapestry peg stamps. Anyone who has ever stamped with me or seen alot of my cards know these are some of my favorite stamps to play with. On this card I tried to match the DP that has the flower pattern. I came close but it isn't perfect. I'll have to keep trying. I have been distressing alot on my cards lately, I go through phases, this is just the latest I guess. I wanted to darken the Baha Breeze CS a bit so I sponged the edges with the same color ink. I also pulled out my Pretties kit. I usually hoard these wonderful embellishments but decided to start using them on my cards.

Stamps: Rubber Stamp Tapestry, Hero Arts
CS: SU Choc Chip, Baha Breeze and SU DP
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Choc Chip, Creamy Caramel, Baha Breeze
Accessories: SU Pretties, Nesties, MM Distressing edger, MS punch and Michael's ribbon

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at what I have created.
I appreciate any comments that you leave about my cards.
Please come back again soon,

That is really pretty, Mary!! I love that color combo and the sketch! I may have to get some of that dp myself. I just love Baja Breeze.

I have some of those pins but I just haven't tried to use them yet.
