Catching Up

I got behind on the My Favorite Things sketches.  This card is made with #98.  When it was posted I just couldn't come up with anything.  I just couldn't come up with anything.  Now that it's done I really love it. 

One of the things that you might not see is that there is lots of stamping on the Rounded Banner die.  There's a sentiment in toffee ink and over that there's bells and ribbons in Walnut Stain.  Even in real life it's not that easy to see, it's very subtle but it adds something to the overall look.  Ranger Walnut Stain is what's sponged all over the edges.  It's a very dark ink and I usually don't like the way it looks but on this card it works for me.

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Tickets" stamp and die-namics set, Inspired by Christmas for the "noel" on ticket, the sentiment and bells stamped on the banner
ink - Versafine "Toffee"; Colorbox "Chianti" and Ranger "Walnut Stain"
paper - Graphic 45 "Botanicabella collection Love Letters"; Stampin' Up "Cherry Cobbler", "Sage Shadow" and "Barely Banana" card stock; My Favorite Things "Kraft" card stock
miscellaneous - My Favorite Things "Poinsettia", "Dizzy Border", "Dizzy Doily", and "Rounded Banner" die-namics; brass pearls; Candy Cane Divine Twine; candlestick charm
