lovin' it

Good morning everyone! Nope, I'm not thinking about McDonald's (remember the I'm Lovin' It theme song?) I'm thinking about the Textured Impression Die!

Remember the other day when I showed you THIS card and said I had one more to show you? Well, here it is! When, I first saw the roses cut around the detail of the rose I LOVED it. There is nothing like being able to show off your patterned paper on a card!

Anyway, I have some paper left from my Walk In The Park bulk buy pack and decided to try the cut out technique. I'm not sure why I chose the Basic Gray patterned paper but I think it is lovely! The vellum is called Linen Vellum Cardstock and I get it from PaperTrey Ink. I love the added texture it gave this card. I left off the sentiment not wanting to conflict with the prettiness of the card. I also completely love the ribbon that I used. It is from SU! and I SO hope they don't retire it! If they do...on June 1st I'll be purchasing myself several more rolls of it!

I know today is a short post but I have lots to do today. Kyler gets his Character Award today at school. The teacher chooses a positive character for each child in the class that best describes them. It is always a neat thing to see. I can't imagine finding 16 different character traits that would work for these kids. After that I help with pizza lunch at his school (last one...yay!) and then I'd like to get some work time in at church (but I'd also really like to stamp!).

I hope you'll stop back tomorrow to check out my limeLIGHT sketch and product challenge card. It is a great sketch and the challenge is to used patterned paper so how could you not like to do that one? Mandy, as always, has some wonderful sales going on in the store right now...something about color (teehee)...so go ahead and check it out! AND, starting June 1st limeLIGHT will be celebrating it's 1st birthday with games, sketches, and a store wide sale you won't want to miss! I'm excited to be joining in the fun, too! Oh, and I just noticed that if you post on your blog about the limeLIGHT Anniversary fun you'll be entered in a chance to win a bottle of Shimmerz Spritz. Check it out HERE!

Friday is my day for the Sweet N Sassy Stamps blog hop so stop on back then to check out a super fun card! The hop starts today, though so be sure to start your hopping by clicking on the links I have for you to follow along with in my right sidebar!

Interesting, I think I will try it later this afternoon. You always "push" me in directions I would NEVER think of going. I haven't thought of Vellum in months. Thank you!
