Blogger's Challenge 85--a sketch

Got to use some new stuff on this card--which is card number 13 in the Your Hired Series (100% Stampin Up!). The background is done with the new exclusive texture plates, the new border punch and the circle is cut from the new Circle Scissors Plus. Love this cutter, so easy to use. (

Here is my card for today's challenge....


and the sketch....



Hope you enjoy your day! It is my 12 year anniversary and tomorrow my son turns 9 where or where does the time go?



Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red, Real Red, Cameo Coral, Pretty in Pink and Raspberry Tart dp
Ink: Basic Black
Other: markers, circle scissors plus, large scallop circle die, eyelet border punch, embossing plate, ribbon,


See ya later!
