There’s a great sketch for this week’s challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.  I played along.

The embossing, sponging and piercing was done using an embossing folder and piercing template.  Using the piercing template as a stencil, ink was sponged on the embossed areas.

And here’s another card using the Tri Square die.  So easy and fun to add some lovely patterns.  It’s a great way to use up some scraps, too, if you’ve got some.

A little embossing adds some interest to the white space, and each ball is accented with a white gel pen.

With the image and sentiment mounted together on the acrylic block, it was easy to get them stamped straight on every time.

Glitter tape adds some sparkle and texture while keeping the cards nice and flat for mailing.
