And here is the card!

Hello everyone!
First of all, I want to thank everyone that left nice comments here and on A blog named Hero! So happy to read them all! Have you seen what an awesome DT! I'm so excited to be able to work with them!
I thought I could share the card here too:
I just masked part of the card and stamped the Large flower with Tuxedo black Memento ink. Then I embossed the edges using my scoring board and stamped the sentiment. To color the flower I used promarkers. Added lots of gems in clear and red to finish it off.
I will be entering this card into the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp for this week.
The challenge is Anything Goes, so make something and you could win one of this:
Thanks for stopping by!

Window Woodgrain Card

Hi everyone!
How was your week? I was quite busy, so I want to make sure I catch up with crafting this weekend. I am taking the new Online Card Class: A cut above, and I am loving it! If you are interested in die cutting, go over there and sign up!
Here is today's card:
I started by die cutting a card with a window, using one of Hero Arts die cuts for the Silhouette. I used Powder layering paper turned inside out, so the blue peaked through the window. For the front panel, I cut the same window out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I stamped it with the Woodgrain stamp using one of the new mid-tone inks: Cup O'Joe. Love it!!!!
Then I took a piece of acetate, and stamped the Exotic Bloom with white StazOn ink. Then I placed the acetate between the card and the front panel gluing everything together. 
I wanted the borders of the card to be darker, so using an ink applicator and the Cup O'Joe ink, I added color to the edges of the card. Then, I made the banner with the sentiment, using Powder and Poppy papers, and glued it with dimensionals over the window. Added a couple of pearls to finish it off.
Here you have a close up of the window:
I really love that effect! I will be entering this card into the current challenge over at A Blog Named Hero:
And into the gallery at the A Cut Above class:
Hope you liked it and have a great weekend!!! Thanks for stopping by!

Hello sketch card

Hi everyone!
I have a new card to share with you:
This card looks simple, but it took ages! I started by stamping the scallop circle for the sentiment, using StazOn, over Daffodil layering paper from Hero Arts. I did it twice, so I could double the small inside flower to give dimension. I also stamped it on Neenah cardstock, but I wiped the ink of the dots used for journaling. I cut both stamped images and went around the borders with a black marker. After I glued them together, I stamped the sentiment using Memento ink and I covered the small flower with Glossy Accents.
For the card base, I used Eggshell layering paper and I clear embossed the woodgrain stamp over the front of the card. Then I masked the pattern on the card and sprayed it using Mr Hueys from Studio Calico. I wanted a gradient, so I started spraying the Classic Studio Calico, concentrating on the bottom of the card. Then I took the Warm Mr Hueys and sprayed it off the bottom of the card, just so it was a bit darker. Using a cloth I removed the excess ink from the embossed area and then removed the masking. Adhered the sentiment using dimensionals, and finish the card with some rhinestones.

I made this card following the sketch from this month contest at Hero Arts:
And I will enter the challenge over at A blog named Hero, because I looooove the woodgrain stamp ;-)
I hope you liked the card and thanks for stopping by!!
