I dug through my Costco DP pack and found this fabulous black and taupe DP. Just LOVE black, taupe/cream together. Such a classy colour combination. Also inked up this gorgeous sentiment that hasn't been used yet. Sorry about the far from perfect scallops around the sentiment. Rectangular Nesties are on my wish list, but till then, scalloped scissors had to do and they didn't do so well...or should I say the cutter did a horrible job!! Had to keep trimming the panel so it would fit and it got harder and harder to line up - ugh! I used my Labels 4 Nestie for the flower image that matches the one on the "L" and matted it by cutting around the outside of the die on black paper in order to get the thin mat. Wasn't sure about the two horizontal strips of ribbon/paper, but once they were added they looked pretty good. Yup, Julee knows what she is doing :)
Hope to get at least one of the Verve Forum sketches done this week so next week doesn't turn into another rush-to-get-four-sketches-done week. Rain is in the forecast so hopefully that means a video for the kids and some stamping time for me this weekend LOL! Failing that, I'll be back on Sunday with my Curtain Call card.
Wishing you a blessed day :)
