MTSC45 Birthday Girl

Finally I've managed to play this week's Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge! This is the last week that my rockin' friend Silke is hosting and hasn't she done a FAB job!!! :) This card was made really quickly and is a bit more CAS for me but I think it turned out OK. This card also qualifies for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge to use Border Punches or Borderabilities of which I am the Hostess!! I am looking at all the cards made and there is still time to play!! :)

I started with a Riding Hood Red base and layered with white (edges pierced) and more RHR that has been embossed with the Argyle EF. The main panel is a piece of white with one edge punched with the Fiskars Eyelet Lace Embossing Punch. Next is some Bella Rose DSP with some white grosgrain ribbon topped with red gingham ribbon attached in the middle. Next I stamped the centre and border from JustRite's Birthday Wishes Set in both Real Red and then Versamark embossed with gold detail EP. I cut out the middle gold panel and attached it to the red border and then matted both with a gold scallop circle and popped the whole panel up on foam tape. To finish I added some Clear Kaisercraft Rhinestones because it seemed to be begging for a bit of bling!! :)

Stamps - Birthday Wishes Set (JustRite)
Paper - Riding Hood Red, White, Gold, Bella Rose DSP
Ink - Real Red, Versamark
Accessories - Gold Detail EP, Fiskars Eyelet Lace Embossing Punch, Large Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilities, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Red Gingham Ribbon, Argyle EF, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)

I noticed you had a comment from Silke Ledlow are famous! I have never gotten a comment from her, but then, my dear sweet friend, I am not so talented as you. I adore your cards and your crisp, professional, and beautiful style.

Gorgeous gorgeous card Kathy - just love the colours and I especially love that punch you have used. Where do you get your punches from. Any online stores - just don't have anywhere here that sells those lovely punches.

Seems like I haven't been to your blog in weeks... what is up with me?? Crazy at my house right now. LOL But the heat is back on so I am happy! :0)
