Thursday Sparks Challenge 12/30

Happy Thursday,

I am very sad because today my break is officially over and I am back to work.  I can say it just wasn't long enough but oh well, what is  a girl supposed to do? 

I am playing along again with the Sparks Paper Smooches challenge.  This week the theme is Anything Goes!
For my card I needed a birthday card so I broke out my Birthday Buddies stamp set.  I first stamped my image on some Core'dinations smooth 110 lb. cardstock.  I then cut the cutie out and colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers.  Next I punched out a circle and got to try a new technique using a Christmas present from my hubby-- embossing paste.  Oh, I think I am hooked on this technique.  You can slightly see the triangle pattern and texture the paste gives it.  Next I made my base using some Core cardstock.  I attached some thick chevron ribbon from May Arts and then stamped my sentiment.  Finally I added my pearls!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new layout using the Paper and Glue collection from Echo Park.  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Love the embossing paste, so cool and that ribbon is awesome! I went back to work today too, but tomorrow is a half day for me and it's Friday!!

That is such a fun card.
I picked up some embossing paste, haven't used it, but have used drywall compound and had a blast with it…so I am sure embossing paste will be just as fun :)

I'm sorry break was over. They always go way way too fast! At least there were some snow days to extend it!

This card is too cute, the sentiment and the image go perfectly together! And I love the red chevron ribbon is so fun!
