You Keep Me in Stitches

yikes - I just realized how long it has been since I added a card.  Life seems to be getting in the way of my cardmaking. I will try to be better!!!!!

This card was once again - using up supplies I have had sitting around.  I bought some doilies a while back - saw some ideas with them.  Finally dug 'em out - this is what I came up with.  This is a card that we did in my June card class.  I like how it turned out.  The cardstock looks black, but it is really navy.  I liked the color combo I chose!  (I am partial to purples!!!!)

Pink and Brown Delight

Doing classes and swaps keeps me using my supplies, and coming up with new ideas!  It keeps me motivated!  I signed up for a swap that requires using 2 different Embossing Folders.  It was definitely a challenge for me.  This is the result - and I am very pleased with how it turned out!  My other goal - use up stuff I have sitting around!!!!!

The front of the card uses the Manhattan Rose Embossing Folder by Stampin Up.  The one on the back part of the card is by Cuttlebug.  I used Cor'dinations cardstock (brown on one side, pink on the other), then sanded to highlight the pink.   This is a special fold card - with the measurements being 5 1/2 x 11.  I sponged the inside white layer with brown ink to tie it all together.
