more new toys

New stamps!! Finally, I have some new stamps to get dirty - today I got to play with Season of Simple Grace. I love this set and have been eyeballing it since the Holiday Mini catalog came out a couple months ago. The card sketch comes from Julee's Mojo Monday sketch this week and works perfectly with this image. I added some diamond Stickles over the star to give it some sparkle and make it stand out a little bit and I used black embossing powder for the sentiment at the bottom. I was impressed the letters didn't get all jumbled together when I melted the powder! The patterned paper is retired and I don't know the name of it, so sorry.

Thanks so much for stopping by -
