Kazan's Sketch #47

Hey there! Today I'm sharing a card I created using Kazan's Sketch #47 over at 2 Sketches 4 You. Click HERE to see the original sketch and lots of wonderful creations from the DT and the challenge participants. If you're ever in a creative slump and need some inspiration, this sketch challenge is a fabulous place to start! And...this week is extra special because DeNami Design is the sponsor and is offering up a super sweet prize! I LOVE their products!!!

I stamped my little Leafy Sprig (DeNami Design) a bunch of times in VersaMark ink and then heat embossed them with "Powder" Zing! Embossing Powder (American Crafts). I heat embossed the Dots (Endless Creations) and the Demi Double Circle (DeNami Design) with "White" Zing! Embossing Powder. The white and aqua papers are metallic cardstock (The Paper Company), so they have lots of shimmer to them.

Here's a close-up:

Are you ready for the weekend? I'm hoping to have a very crafty weekend---especially since I just received some new stamps in the mail today!!! YAY!!!! Finally, something besides junk mail in the old mailbox! Ha! What are your plans?
