Seattle Treasures

Today's cards were made with some of the treasures I found in Seattle last week = ). This first card is for today's sketch challenge over at SCS (SC170). Great sketch...thanks Rox! Perfect for showing off this gorgeous DP I found at the Amuse shop. It's made by College Press, part of their Doubletake, "Seeds" Collection. The paper was just too pretty to cover up, so the only thing I stamped was the scripture from my Light of the World set, from Our Daily Bread Designs. What a treat to have great scripture stamps to use!! I really do love Kelleys' new stamps...AND she's just getting ready to release 2 new sets very soon, so I'll have more to show you in the next couple weeks. You can check it all out at ODBD! This next card is a quick, simple one featuring my new Fairy Girl Elzybells. If you're ever in the Seattle area and get a chance to stop at the Amuse shop, I highly recommend it. It was a really fun shop to spend a little time in...such a cheerful, happy place filled with amazing stamps and supplies!! I had to use a LOT of self control, the bulk of my budget went to ribbon. This ribbon is so pretty...sheer in the middle, with a hint of sparkle, and colored on the edges. Of course, I "needed" a variety of colors. If there is a treatment center for people addicted to ribbon, I might need to go. My friend Sandi suggested that perhaps I should look into glitter/spakle addiction centers also (lol...she knows me too well!). I used Dazzling Diamonds glitter on Elzy's wings, Sakura Stardust pens on her dress, trim, slippers and hair, yellow Stickles on the tip of her wand and self adhesive rhinestones on the sentiment....but I think Elzybells likes all that sparkle...don't you?

That's all for now...back to my stamping = ) !
