Here's hoping this is the start of something good!

YAY!!! I made a card today! Actually, I made one yesterday too, but I can't show it to you because it's for my DH for Valentine's Day and he reads my blog. I don't want to spoil the surprise!

Here's what I made today:

I used the Mojo Monday sketch from the Mojo Monday Blog. It was a great sketch to play with, especially since I was REALLY wanting to break in to my Candy Lane paper and use the new Love you Much stamp set from Stampin' Up.

So, I used my SU markers to colour the image and then stamped it on Very Vanilla Cardstock. I mounted the main image on Riding Hood Red and again on Very Vanilla before adhering it to the card face which is two pieces of the same Candy Lane paper (love double sided!). The card base is Chocolate Chip.

Lately, I've been seeing a lot of card insides that have been "finished", so I decided to try my hand at that. I have to say, I like it! So, here's the inside of the card:


It's very simple, but it adds just the right finishing touch.

What do you think?

Recipe:

Card base: 5 1/2" X 5 1/2"
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla
DSP: Candy Lane
Markers: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Ruby Red
Accessories: Ribbon, Pewter Heart Charm, Ticket Corner Punch

Happy Stampin'!
