amazing...

Hey friends!!  Happy New Year!!  Did you stay up until midnight to ring in the new year??  I did not, lol!!  I was in bed and woke up for a few minutes at midnight because some neighbors were shooting off fireworks and then went back to sleep!  On new years day the hubs and I took the boys up to the Seattle waterfront.  Unfortunately the place we wanted to visit was closed so we had some lunch and then headed to the Boeing Museum of Flight.  All in all a very good start to the new year!  Well... I do have a card to share.  A little something that I made for the current ColourQ challenge and the current MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge. My take is a little stripped down, but I think you can still see the sketch in there, lol!  I used a combination of MFT stamps and dies and Precious Remembrance Shop stamps.  My all time favorite PRS set is DIY and I used elements from that to create the background on my panel.  The word "amazing" (from the MFT Amazing die set) was die cut from black cardstock 4 times, adhered together.  Since the A is actually separate from the rest of the word I was able to add a few loops of gold metallic thread behind it before adhering everything to the panel.  The sentiment is from the MFT Amazing stamp set.  Love the aqua, black, gold and white color combo... think I will be making something else using it! 



Thanks for stopping by...

Rosemary, your card is simply "AMAZING"...that's what it is. :)
I love the pretty colors, fabulous stamping, & design.

You've used it so beautifully.

Simply gorgeous, Rosemary ... you always do collage stamping so beautifully ... the bold sentiment is fabulous over that delicate background! Smiling as I also have a card using the MFT/CQ combo (a perfect pairing!) ... posting a little later! Hugs, Anita :)

Gorgeous color combo, but that sketch had me baffled! Your card is another fabulous example of your incredible talent as a designer, my friend--LOVE this card! The gold thread behind the A is brilliant as is your collage stamping!

Looking fabulous! Love the gold thread behind the A. Is it just regular sewing thread? I want to get some!
