A fun Ways to Use It Challenge this week over on Split Coast - to put something at an angle on your card. It can really add a visual punch to your card!
I angled my framing panel behind my image as well as the twine tied around the card.
My stamp is from a just released group of weed stamps by Rubbernecker This one is #497-14. There's also a new set of pretty florals. If you're into gardens and the outdoors - be sure to check them out!
I stamped the weed once in Juniper ink, then overstamped it slightly off the first stamping in Bottle ink so it looks like it's shadowed. A simple CAS design today!

My second card was made for the Inspiration Challenge on Split Coast today.
The challenge was to make a card inspired by your home state or town. I used some pictures I took from Memorial Day 2008 in my town of Saugus. One picture from the parade and one of tha planter I had on my front yard.
Have a great weekend everyone! Kent and I are off to the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA to see the special exhibit there on the Mayan's and then off to a fun dinner at The Black Lobster with our church fellowship group.
