10 Minute Wednesday

Here's my 10 minute card for this week.  I used the new "Just Believe" set that I think should have been called Just Gorgeous :)  I used my Colour Coach to pick out my combination of Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi and Early Espresso.  Very, very pretty combo.  I see myself using it again and again.

I inked up the stamp with my Stampin' Write markers which is my favorite technique at the moment.  I also used the Lattice folder to add texture to the background of the card.  And still really diggin' the new 1/8" ribbon.  Didn't think I would (thought it was too small) but it really added that perfect something to a card with a big focal point.  Or is perfect to add to our Mini Library Clips (watch for a card tomorrow or Friday with that!!)

Here it is:

Looks great! What did you do to the white stamped piece to make it look all 'old and battered'? it looks sooo cool like that. I tend to over do it, or make it look like I made it look like that (does that make sense?)ha!

It's the confetti paper and I used the distressing tool on the edges, then sponged them with Early Espresso and used my fingernail a bit after. turned the one corner over slightly too.

Love the distressed edges, and the blue and green together are fabulous! I just became a follower through SC. I hope you will follow me, too! http://www.heartsdelightcards.blogspot.com/

So pretty! Thank you for sharing! I am one of your followers from Stampin' Connection. (I'm the one that started the Follow Me thread) I have a small favor to ask, please. I had to switch over my website (it used to be BellevueStampingClub) and lost all of my followers from SC. Would you be so kind as to go to my new site listed below and RE-follow me, please? You may have to copy and paste the link. Thanks so much! I really appreciate it!
