Be Well

Hi!!! What a week! I am pooped! But as usual, I needed the card therapy so here is the outcome! I made this for Tuesday's Midnight Madness sketch and for Thursday's Way to Use It challenge to use red. I used two of the versatile new sets from Our Daily Bread designs, Get Well Soon and Thinking of You. I actually put both stamps onto the acrylic block and stamped them as one stamp! I cut this out with a Spellbinders rectangle and sponged Real Red ink while still in the die. Added the Spellbinders Lattice pendant die cut things at the top and bottom of the image to stay with the sketch. I stamped the butterfly again in red and cut it out. I added Glossy Accents and fine glitter. Red gemstones on the flourishes and a pretty butterfly charm I found at Walmart and I am done! Hope ya'll have a wonderful Sunday! Thanks for coming by today!

  5. Sandee, You have such a way with colors and coordinating them so perfectly. I love the bold red and how smoothly you sponged and shaded. The flourish with gems is so beautiful! Another gorgeous card from you! Thank you for taking the time to play with us this week. I am so glad you did. Hope you will keep on playing. We love to visit you and see your creations.

  6. Sandee, this is so lovely! I have the hardest time using red, but you make it look SO easy and on a bugger of a sketch to boot! Beautiful! :)

  7. This is beautiful Sandee!! I love the red and your use of the MM sketch!! Great use of those stamps girl. You rock!!
    I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

  8. Wow, my favorite color...Red!! This is strikingly beautiful beyond a shadow of a doubt. I didn't get to play in the WT235 challenge this week as I couldn't get into any of the card galleries. But, I am back it today. I guess they must have fixed it finally. This is just gorgeous. Thanks for playing with us again this week. We sure do appreciate it.


  9. Sandee this is GORGEOUS!!! Love your take on the sketch! I am more behind than you! I have this and another on my desk and have not had time to play with it yet, but my Grandkids were here today and that was so fun! One last day of summer on the lake! Glad you got some card therapy after a big week! Hugs!

  10. Gorgeous again, Sandee!
