Late CPS Challenge....ouch!!!



I made this card for a sketch challenge held by CPS. I don't know how I overlooked the sketch deadline but somehow I did. Oh well...last weeks sketch was definitely a challenge for me but I'm glad that I hung in there and finished it! Before I close, we are having some wicked weather in my area. I tell ya... the past few days we have experienced severe thunder storms accompanied with very high winds. The damages from the high winds have uprooted trees and some streets are impassable. Thankfully there haven't been any serious injuries related to the storms.(In my area) It will be a major relief when this storm system weakens and fades out. Have a great day everyone and try to stay cool!



The details
stamps: Verve Visual and TAC, sentiment: Amuse cardstock: Stampers Select, DP Chatterbox and My Minds Eye, Nestabilities rectangle templates, inks: Adirondack Pitch Black and Copic Markers embellishments: brads, ribbon, scallop scissors, extra fine glitter, window punch and paper pierce tool

this is a very pretty card Malieta! Sorry to hear about the weather you are having. We have been having some lovely weather the past couple days but I hear the storm is on its way. last night a tornado went through Fredericton and my DH said. "Its getting closer to us all the time"
Scarry stuff, you just can't control the weather!!

WOOOOO...This is so pretty! I love the cool tones...makes me want Winter! That solid background paper looks like denim...very nice! I like the piercing around the edge, too. Sort of a faux stitching. This I could do! No sewing! LOL! Stay safe in all that weather, it's warming up where I live and I am NOT a Summer person...at all. Guess it's time to stay inside and practice my Copic coloring techniques! ;-)
