A La Card Monkey #110

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I'm back among the living from my bout of cellulitis in my leg.  I'm still finishing antibiotics and have to be careful about how much I'm "upright" because of some residual swelling, but other than that, I'm glad to be back crafting!  It's amazing how tiring doing nothing can be!!!

The wonderful Shirley and Terry over at A La Card Monkey have asked me to step into the guest designer role again this week, and I am more than happy to oblige!  I love playing along with their weekly challenges, and I hope you all will join us!  This week's theme is The Sky's the Limit + Sketch, which features two circles (can be any shape), along with a sentiment and a little color blocking at the bottom of the card. Literally, the sky is the limit. Go where you want to go with your creation - add whatever embellishments you desire. Just have fun with it, and invite all of your friends to play along.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my interpretation, featuring the Triple Treat Flower stamp and Spice Cake designer series paper.  The card base is River Rock, although that's a little hard to tell in my photos, layered with a piece of More Mustard that I ran the top half through the Elegant Lines embossing folder.  You also get a little sneak peek at one of the 2012-2013 SU catalog items, as I've used one of the dies from the Bitty Banners Framelits set.  Love it!

I took one of my Grandmother's vintage buttons and layered it with an Everyday Enchantment brad.  I simply snipped off its' prongs and attached it to the button with glue dots.

Be sure you go over the A La Card Monkey and check out the other design team cards, then create your own and submit it!  I'll be looking for you!

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
