You Rock!

Good Morning Stampers! Thanks for stopping by today!

I got a chance to stamp a bit today after helping a friend with her graduation invitations and another friend with our class memory book for our daughters' teacher in honor of teacher appreciation week. There are so many sketches and color challenges to play with that I have been combining them. This week promises to have several challenges combined in my cards!

Today's card is a fun one-great for teens and tweens. I used the Color Throw Down challenge with Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black and So Saffron and Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch-an awesome sketch as always!

I started with a square card base of Tempting Turquoise measuring 4 3/4" x 9 1/2" folded in half. I added triangles of So Saffron and Basic Black and then stamped my Tempting Turquoise mat in the same color using the stars from the Just Jawing set. I stapled a piece of the So Saffron ribbon from Sale-A-Bration on the edge for interest.
The skull is stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White, cut out and adhered with Dimensionals as is the Tempting Turquoise bow. The sentiment, also in Basic Black on Whisper White, is adhered so it is raised a little like a flag flapping in the wind. The final touch...a little bling with Dazzling Diamonds on the eyes of the skull.

So it's been pretty quiet here as far as comments-anybody out there?!?!?!? (echo....echo...) I know it's so much faster and you can see so many more awesome blogs if you don't comment but please send me some love! ;)

Have a great day and I hope you stop by again soon!
