Crafty Engineering

I used Kimmie's sketch from the Pink Cat Studio contest she is holding on her Fabulous! blog Kraftin' Kimmie's Korner

I am hoping to do some more sketch challenges (trying to combine them). I love doing them...I just need a little more time...I'm sure a lot of people can relate. It seems like sketch challenges and cards are in full swing right now...everything is so Gorgeous with the colors of Fall and Christmas on the way. I love it..there are so many Beautiful creations to look at ...and I am probably spending more time than I should on the Puter....But it sure is fun!!

Enough Babbling......Here's my card:

Stamps - High Hopes, SU Priceless, SU So Many Sayings

Paper - whisper white, blue bayou, dcwv metallic paper, magnolia papers

Ink - classic black, creamy caramel, close to cocoa, old olive

Accents - pearls, stitching, cuttlebug corners, coluzzle for the scallops, cord, hope charm, stardust pens, stickles and paper piercing.

This Fabulous High Hopes Image (from my daughter...Thanks Trina) is colored with Prismacolor pencils ( oderless mineral spirits) and Twinkling H20's

Have a Wonderful Weekend everyone.....and .....Thank you so much for looking and your Fabulous comments.
