Creative Belli Challenge #94 sketch

Morning everyone! Just wanted to put up a quick post with a card I made the other day. While I was scanning down the list at Daily Dare, I came across this site called Creative Belli Blog Challenges. They do a bi-weekly challenge and I figured I would give it a try. Check it out if you get a chance. I believe the new ones get posted on Wednesdays.Most of the papers are from my stash and the firecracker stamp is from Ken Brown Stamps. I always feel real good when I get to use a stamp I have had for ages. I used the Threading Water border punch from Fiskars and some red grosgrain ribbon to form my bottom edge. I added some Stickles and silver stars to the dp background for sparkle. I also did a bit of distressing around my edges with Colorbox, Lipstick Red. My images were colored with OMS and pencils.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday! I may be back with more posts as the day perks on. I'm going to try and lay real low, outta hubby's hair, for the first couple days of his vacation, then I will start buttering up for trips to stamp stores. Time for my second cup of joe........
