I Positively Adore You

Welcome to my blog!  Today we have another sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is the super-talented Amy O'Neill.  Check out her sketch:
Such a great sketch!  I decided to take a break from Christmas cards and make a birthday card for DH, whose birthday is on Christmas Eve.   I used NBUS from MFT Stamps, having taken advantage of their recent 30% off sale to buy a few things on my wishlist.


I white-embossed several images plus the sentiment on a black panel then die-cut it with a stitched square die.  The flasks were cut from white cardstock and colored with Copics and the  "tube" connecting them was cut from gray cardstock.  The card base was also die-cut with a stitched die.


All in all a simple card but I'm sure DH will enjoy it.  

Thanks for visiting!  The DT have some gorgeous creations using Amy's sketch so take a minute to check them out.



Products used:

Stamps:  Undeniable Chemistry (MFT)
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  White, Black, Slate (SSS)
Dies:  Undeniable Chemistry (MFT), Stitched Mats Rectangles, Stitched Mats Squares (Lil Inkers)
Accessories:  Copics, White EP, Wink of Stella

Cheers
Karren
