World CardMaking Day


Made for the Verve Stamps World Card Making Day Fall Release Week Challenge, following their sketch #1.  I'm also entering this into Hero Arts World Card Making Day challenge, to make a card using my favorite colors. Mine is obviously blue!  This was a great sketch for me right now; I've been away a week, and seem to have forgotten how to do anything, so having this sketch was a wonderful help to get me back into creating mode!  I don't own a single Verve stamp, so hopefully entering this challenge will win me some!  Thank you, Verve, for not requiring them this time. 

Supplies:  blue, dark blue, and cream cardstocks, vellum, unknown striped dp, Versafine onyx black and clear embossing powder, Adirondack stonewashed ink, peeled paint distress ink, blue and green markers for details, Hero Arts K5376 Hydrangea, S4878 Old Letter Writing, CL131 SparkleClear Messages, dark blue fringed ribbon
