Card Sketch #84 - celebrate moments!

Hi everyone! Here's sketch #84! This one measures normal A2 size!

As you can see, I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to cut the circle when I drew this up in Microsoft word! There's only so much you can do with it! I might have to start using PSE 5 to create with from now on!

Ok, a couple of things going on with this one! I made the circle and the strip back ground paper using a technique that might be out there somewhere - and I don't know what to call it! I used some re-inkers (Palette Jardin Moss) and some Crystal Lacquer, mixed it up and sponged it on with a make up sponge. After it was dry, I stamped on the circle, and ran the strip through my new cuttlebug embossing border folder.

I decided to get out the sewing machine and stitch up this one! The stitching got really small at the top for some reason! lol - but what the heck - it looks pretty good otherwise!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! It's raining and a perfect day to stay inside and stamp!

It was raining here, too, and I agree that it was a perfect day to stamp. :) This card is beautiful! I especially like the stitching.
