You make life sweeter...


Sorry I was MIA yesterday, I've been swamped working on lots of things 'behind the scenes' and just didn't have time to make a card to share. But I promise it will all be worth it soon enough. However, I was able to squeeze in one more card using another of the new background stamps from Hello Bluebird for my post today. The Diamond Daze background stamp is a cool print with a lot of movement and energy to it so I wanted to keep my treatment of it fairly simple. I ended up using white embossing powder and heat embossing the stamp onto a light kraft card stock, which I then used as the main panel on my card front. Diamond Daze also has kind of a mod, retro vibe which lead me to inking up this cute badger from the Autumn Gatherings set. With that little cap and glasses he makes me think of the 60's for some reason. The rest of the little scene was put together by stamping and masking bits and pieces from a handful of different sets.   :)

Ok then, time for me to get busy again. Have a good one!
