Casing Kris



After visiting family in Ohio over Thanksgiving, it's good to be home and back in my stamp room. The alarm went off at 4:45 a.m. and we were on the road by 5:20. With speed limits now 70 mph on most interstates, my DH's heavy foot got us home in record time! Good thing because I had to be at work by 2:15. It's been an exhausting day and I look forward to sleeping in tomorrow. And now for my card...
It qualifies for 2 challenges:
Curtain Call Color Challenge - use Crumb Cake, Concord Crush, Basic Gray, Black, White
SCS Featured Stamper - CASE one of Kris' (aka krischir) cards - I chose this card. I kept the thank you theme and used a different EF, butterfly stamp, & ribbon. The image was colored with Copics on the smooth as silk X-Press It Blending CS.
STAMPS: Stipple Butterfly (SU), Friendly Phrases (Verve)
PAPER: Crumb Cake, Concord Crush, White
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: CB, Lattice Square EF, Copics, Concord Crush ribbon, MS Floral Band border punch, Corner chomper, Wire

Wonderfully done, Wanda. Don't think I could make a card after having to get up at 4:45 a.m. (I'm NOT an early morning person LOL!) and then working to boot. Lovely use of the colours and the butterfly is fabulous :)
