My Extra Hour

The tiaras and wands were decorated, the games were all played, the gifts all opened, and "the cake" (now a mere shadow of its former glory, by the way) eaten ... with time left over to stamp last night (thanks to the time change)!

This card is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #26. Thanks to my upline, Sue, for encouraging me to see the Dashing designer paper line as more than just Christmas paper. I used it and the coordinating colors as the basis for this card of encouragement.

For the sentiment, I used my aqua painter to add a color wash in River Rock. I went back in and highlighted certain words with Real Red, again with the aqua painter.

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Priceless, Friendship Flowers
Inks: Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Real Red, River Rock
Paper: Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Real Red, Dashing designer paper
Accessories: Word Window punch, olive brads, 2-way glue pen, dazzling diamonds glitter, aqua painter, paper piercer
