The Skipping Stones: Thank You

this is my post 1 of 2...make sure you check out my The Craft's Meow post!


Hello and Welcome to Skipping Stones Design Tuesday!

I've been thoroughly enjoying being a Guest Designer for Skipping Stones Design!

Check out this week's sketch:


Initially I was pretty challenged by the sketch....but what I ended up doing is stamping some of the various backgrounds...heat embossing them in gold and punching circles:



Super easy smeasy and I love the look!  Some of the circles don't show their gorgeous gold color but they have been all gold heat embossed.  I finished off the sentiment with some Martha gold glitter...glitter...I adore glitter.

I used the Skipping Stones Design:



and



One of the things I love about this card is that it could be easily feminine {girls would appreciate the gold heat embossing & glitter} or masculine {guys would appreciate the non-frilliness of the design}....doesn't get much better than that, does it?

Make sure you pop over to the Skipping Stones Design blog to check out all the projects for this week!
