For today I decided use the Card Positioning System sketch CPS116...seriously, how could I NOT use it since the challenge is sponsored by Emily herself! Well, actually there are two reasons I decided to use it, 1) I am SKETCH CHALLENGED, 2) I spent all weekend painting my living and dining rooms so there was NO TIME to come up with a sketch myself. Not to mention at last minute on Saturday I decided to drive to Windsor and attend my high school's 80th anniversary reunion. Now, I'm not THAT old, but it has been 30+ years since I graduated high school and I knew that many of my classmates would be there, not to mention my two BFF's who I have not seen in nearly 20 years! Time has been really good to both of them and I hope now that our children are grown and (nearly) out of the house we won't lose touch for that long again.
Back to the card. I used Stamping Bella's Gerbera in Vase and as usual, colored with my copics and shaded with pencils. I did add a bit of glamour dust glitter with my Quickie glue pen to the center of the flower, and you know me, if it looks like it might be glass, it gets a nice thick coating of ranger glossy accents. I cut it out with my long nestie die and mounted it on Basic Grey Marrakech paper. To keep with the challenge sketch I added a row of Bella's dots secured with Micro Dots, the BEST way to secure embellies to ribbon!
Finally, I leave you with a pic of the gals who were (apparantly) always the life of the party at KCI!
