Last of the "Masterpieces"...

Yikes...if you get this blog update by email - I'm sorry for the accidently post. I was typing my title and my pinky finger must have stretched too far because the next thing I knew, it said my post was successful. sigh...rush, rush, all the time.

Anyways, thank you so much for hanging in there with me this entire year! I hope my posts have been's discouraging when folks drop off but I know time is limited, tastes change and that's just life! But as a way of thanking you for sticking it out with me I will be having a week of give aways here on my blog - so come back and check it out!!

Now for my card. I loved this stamp set the minute I saw it but it takes a bit of work figuring out what works color wise. It's well worth it! I did try the harness with a green and red and didn't like the contrast with the brown at the end, I used yellow and red and then touched over the yellows with a yellow gel pen and it makes it look almost golden in real life.

The ruffle? It is the coolest thing EVER...and I saw the idea on Andrea Walford's blog...she used a lunch bag! It's great because you can ink it up and crinkle it without adding a lot of bulk to your card. I hope you like it!
