Another Card...Tagged....and a Sketch Challenge!!

I got new goodies the other day at eclectic Paperie...I am in love with these Rubber Romance stamps. This one is Tiffany...isn't she gorgeous? I thought I'd use my new Basic Grey Infuse 6x6 pad. The layout is a version of one from pagemaps.com. Ok, so it didn't turn out quite like the sketch, but isn't that all part of it? :D

First I stamped Tiffany in Palette Hybrid Noir on Papertrey White
Cardstock. I colored her with Prismacolors and Odorless Mineral Spirits, and matted her on Chocolate Chip. I stamped the small Old Olive strip with my Linen BG stamp in Close to Cocoa Ink. Then I lined up the A Muse sentiment with the image and stamped it in
Palette Hybrid Noir. I matted both pieces of the Infuse paper on Choc. Chip CS as well, tied a little ribbon around it, and popped up the main image with pop dots. {Just a little hint: When you have big images like this and you mat them, don't waste the cardstock! Punch circles, tabs, or other shapes out of the middle where they won't show! I learned this trick from Lori (aka stamp_momma)...she ROCKS!}
ETA: Good night, Nurse! I keep forgetting to add recipes to my posts! Arrgh!
Stamps: Rubber Romance - Tiffany, A Muse Sentiment, Linen
Paper: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, PT White, Basic Grey Infuse
Ink: Palette Hybrid Noir, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Brads, May Arts Ribbon, Grosgrain Ribbon from Mikes, Prismacolors & OMS, Pop Dots

One more thing! Mercy tagged me...so here's 7 random things about me...

1. I have a new doggie. He adopted us on Tuesday when DH was taking out the trash. We're still waiting for someone to claim him (and hoping no one does)...he's so sweet.

2. We're addicted to reality tv. Nuff Said.

3. I HATE getting up early. And I don't like to chat for at least an hour after I've gotten up. That first hour determines my mood for the day.

4. I'm on a diet and I stink at it.

5. My patio is green. Seriously...it has been raining since May. Ewwww...

6. I have a million mosquito bites from doing fireworks on Wednesday.

7. My right foot is 1/2 size bigger than my left one.


I'm going to tag Julee, Kendra, Colleen, Dina, Libby, AJ, & Flo.
Oh dear!!!!!!!!! I just remembered I promised blog candy today. Ok...let's do this. Make a card using the above sketch as inspiration, post a comment and link it here by Saturday 7/14, and I'll do a random drawing on Sunday. Sound good? I promise, the candy will be good....ribbon, items to alter, patterned paper, and maybe some stamps! I'll also do a special little prize for the first one to enter. G'Night!

I love this card! I think when I was a little girl I always wanted my "name" to be Tiffany! I'm glad to hear your hubby is doing better. Pneumonia is NO FUN!

What a great card - I just love those Rubber Romance stamps. I'm not a morning person, either. My dad told DH before we got married that we'd get along great as long as he didn't try to talk to me before 10 AM! LOL!
