Hello. Did you miss me?

I can't believe it has been over a week since my last post. Shame on me! I didn't do any of the challenges on SCS last week. I've been doing a little bit of stamping, though. Cornish Heritage Farms is having a backgrounder blitz. Each day there is a challenge and random drawings for prizes. So I thought I would show you some of the cards I made for that. I know some people prefer each card in a separate post, so that is what I'll do with these. Here is the first one, which was made for a sketch challenge.

The trees backgrounder is stamped in chocolate chip on really rust card stock and matted on black. The single black-eyed susan was stamped in stazon on vanilla and colored with markers and cut out. The ovals are cut with my nestabilities dies & my cuttlebug. I embossed the plain oval and then rubbed the edge with olive metallic rub-ons. The sentiment was stamped on twill. The main image and the photo corner punches are popped up on dimensional tape.

stamps: trees backgrounder, single black-eyed susan, sentiment (CHF)
ink: chocolate chip, basic black, jet black stazon, various markers (SU)
paper: basic black, really rust, certainly celery, very vanilla
other: photo corner punch, twill, oval nestabilities, cuttlebug, dimensional tape, metallic rub-ons, black brads

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back with more cards from these challenges.

Love the way you have the flower coming off of the oval. This is beautiful, Melody!
