Follow Your Heart!

I put this together yesterday for the sketch & color challenges on Splitcoast this week. It is so exciting to be stamping with new stuff! This set is called Vintage Vogue which also has a matching wheel that I have but didn't use this time. What do you think of the new satin ribbon? This is the only black ribbon I have- I always thought black was just not a good color for ribbon, but I've learned that I was wrong. It can be very striking and appropriate.

I also used the new Polka Dot embossing folder as well as the new scallop trim corner and edge punches. The corner punch takes some practice but it is a beautiful look when it comes together. I will play with it more then post any tips that I come up with. The main one I have right now is to practice on scrap paper before your final project!

The one thing on this card that is long since retired is the rub-on from Eastern Elegance. I love rubons but often forget to use them. I wanted a more formal script here and thought this was perfect.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm hoping to get started on my Christmas cards today... although I don't know why I bother- they never go out before New Year's Day! Some people try to get their's our first- well I pride myself on being the LAST Christmas card anyone gets. LOL!

Stay warm! We've got a wind chill below zero today- brrrr!
