BEATE'S WEEKEND SKETCH CHALLENGE #30

I can't believe I finally got my act together to do a little stamping this week! Allie and Drew were off with friends tonight, and John was engrossed in his hobby, computer generated art. A perfect opportunity for a challenge, and of course, I had to do Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #30! I've had the new stamp set Embrace Life for weeks, and I finally got around to using it tonight, along with the new Ginger Blossom DP.

RECIPE
Stamps: Embrace Life
Paper: Ginger Blossom DP, Ruby Red, Groovy Guava, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Jet Black Staz-On, Ruby Red and River Rock Classic
Embellishments: Ruby Red Brads, River Rock Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: Aquapainter, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Photo Corner Punch, Paper Piercing Tool/Mat/Template, Stamp-a-ma-jig for sentiment.
