These seemed the perfect colours for a boys birthday card - I remembered I had this wonderful denim ribbon from SU and the star die I have been meaning to use for some time. I am currently in the middle of the Kickstart online class, and Jennifer McGuire loves her techniques so remembered this easy non-messy pretend embossing technique and I think it looks really effective in Kraft. Not sure I was wise in putting navy Stickles on the 9 as it took AGES to dry but I think Alex will like it.
What you need
Cardstock - PTI kraft, white; BB dark brown
Stamps - PTI Mat Stack 4 collection
Ink - SU Early Espresso
Dies - MFT Stacks of Stars; PTI Numbers
Ribbon - SU
Stickles - Midnight Blue

Well, it's school holiday time again, thank goodness! It has been a long and tiring term for my little girl, they seem to have alot of extra curricular activities, so add this to what she is already doing and we have one had-it bunny.
We have had a few days of the usual 6 monthly appointments and now a couple of days at home. She is going camping with her Dad for a few days later this week while I catch up on work. Hopefully the weather will be kind to them
So here is a card - wasn't sure when I would post again but these 2 challenges have brought me back. I got some new SU goodies during the week including DSP brights collection. I have seen some wonderful cards using this and can't wait to have a go myself.
