I'm Going Off-Sketch for the day!

Well, due to being quite busy enjoying relaxing time with The Hubbums last week, I, unfortunately, was not able to get to the Skipping Stones Sketch for today! *GASP!* I know! It's tragic, really, it is. BUT...the good news is that there IS, indeed, a new sketch and YOU can win free stamps by participating! You just need to follow the sketch - you don't even have to use SSD stamps to play along! (But if you have them, we love to see them!) I did, however, want to share a card using the Beautiful Botanicals set! This was another one of my Stamping Royalty entries, so I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you!
Thinking of You
This also happened to be one of the very first cards I created with my Grand Calibur just after I got it! I love how you can stamp with the die still in place to get the PERFECT frame around your stamping! *sigh* It just makes me happy. Just say'n.
Thinking of You (detail 2)
I stamped the image in white ink. If I was doing this over again, I would probably heat emboss the image in white, but I didn't have the Stampendous! powder to do that at the time. I do now!!! YAY!

So...even though I went off-sketch for this week, I hope you will head on over to Skipping Stones Design and check out what the Design Team has created and PLAY ALONG! Seriously, you guys...it's a random drawing for the prize and the odds are usually pretty good! AND...you get to make a card, so that's just super fun! Jingle Out!
