If It Hadn't Been For Blogger....

This card would have been entered into two different challenges!  But because Blogger went down for over 24 hours, I wasn't able to enter it into this week's Waltzingmouse sketch challenge... sigh!  So, I'm just entering it into the other challenge... the Paper Players!   This week the challenge over at The Paper Players is a color challenge to use Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy & Early Espresso.   It took a bit of time for me to figure out a nice way to combine the colors, but I really like how the card turned out.  It is a little on the masculine side... but that's okay.   Some day I may need a thank you card for a guy!!  All stamps used are from the Waltzingmouse set Victorian Frippery. 



Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White; SU! Not Quite Navy & Cherry Cobbler; Stamps:  WMS Victorian Frippery; Ink:  SU! Cherry Cobbler & Early Espresso, PTI Enchanted Evening & Ranger Old Paper Distress Ink; Spellbinders Large Plain & Scalloped Circle die
