Cheers to a New Year!

I'm finally getting back in the swing of things after all the hullabaloo of Christmas prep and the holidays. I hadn't made any cards in so long {at least it seems that way} so I'm slowly working on getting my MOJO back.

Here's another CAS card for the Freshly Made Sketch using the Color Q colors!!


Kept true to the sketch and colors.... sometimes when you haven't stamped in a long time... it's good to have structure. The banners were die cut with MFT Flag Stax- the gray banners were stamped with images from MFT MPD Distressed back grounds using a glue pad and then sprinkled with glitter. To make the white diamond banner I used MFT MPD Graduated Diamonds stencil and sprayed with Heidi Swapp gold mist. Adding some stitching and a sentiment from a retired MFT set that had never been inked.



Hope you're having a great WE and if you are in the path of snow.... hope you are keeping warm!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
