Recess Time?


I have waited a long to time make this card. When I purchased this set School Yard Fun from Whimsy Stamps, I always knew I wanted to pair it with TH Brick Wall eb folder. I looked for months to find the folder and no one had it. I was really happy to find out I could order it from my favorite store in town and I had it in three days.
Then I finally was able to find Whimsy's challenge blog so that was the only incentive I need. This weeks challenge was for a mono chromatic card. I used light gray as my main color, followed by a very dark gray for my mat. I added some silver embossing powder and silver brads. I used a tiny star punch and added glossy accents. I used their large Postage Stamp die to cut the slide out. The challenge is always on Wednesday so this is a bit late only two hours left.
I'll tell you where I've been in the next post, stay tune for a big laugh!
Have a wonderful day and I will be back before noon my time.
