CTD #314- yay!

Yay!! Yay it's Wednesday and I am able to post to blogger- have been trying for the past two days via firefox and it wouldn't work- so today I tried google chrome and it worked.....geesh!!

Lori picked some wonderful colors for us this week!!

Doesn't that look delish!!

Here's my card...

I went a bit graphic this week, not normally something I am comfortable with but, this Simon Says Stamp die "Ring Frame" helped.... A LOT!! I diecut it four times- using the white for the base and then added the colored circles. I sponged the outer edge of the circles with corresponding SU ink to add a little dimension. The sentiment is PTI stamped with versamark and heat embossed with black- a few enamel dots finish it off.

Our Guest Designer this month...Tara Godfrey from Inking on the Edge - this girl knows how to layer and embellish!!

And the featured Stamper this week is Lin Brandyberry... you can find her blog Hearts, Hugs, and Flowers... here
