Thanks Sew Much!

I loved everything on the Ginko Paper Web site that Anne showed us for the Inspiration Challenge over on Split Coast! But this floral mouse pad really caught my eye with it's bright colors against the black.I used the Sewing Box Hugs stamp set by Waltzingmouse Stamps for my card.
I white embossed a flower and two leaves on the card then layered the rest on patterned paper using foam dimensionals. I sponged the edges with Aqua mist ink and added gems to the centers for a little shimmer!
I'm having such a busy day today - Kent and I went into Boston for a matinee at the Calderwood Theater to see a play called Stick Fly and tonight we're off to a local Symphony production. We have season tickets to both and they just happened to fall on the same day this month - we're going to be cultured out by the end of the night!
You'll notice I did manage to squeeze in a card though!
and now some public service announcements!
I'm going to be teaching at the Stamping Around weekend in North Hampton, NH April 16th -17th you can see the ad on my side bar too! I'd love to meet you if you can get there!
And WMS is having a blog hop over at the new WMS forum on 3/17 in honor of St. Patrick's Day - Claire will have a free digi image on her blog this Monday for you to use in case you don't have St. Paddy's stamps! Be sure to check it out!
