Baroque Pair

Well - my whole household is sick. My ds started it, and we've all fallen victim. My dd is having a really hard time with the way she's feeling (she's 23 months) and I had a 3 hour nap today. So please excuse me if the post is short and sweet, but I'm heading to bed.

I did want to share this card I made for my inlaws 25th wedding anniversary.

I stamped the flourish from Baroque Motifs in Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder. I used a tutorial from Natasha to dry emboss the rectangle. A neat effect that I'll use again - until I get my own set of Nestabilities anyway.

Here's another Baroque card - these are pretty simple and I haven't had time to really "play" with this set yet.

Colours are Blue Bayou and Soft Sky and I overstamped everything with Versamagic Platinum metallic chalk ink for a bit of pizzazz. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line everything up when stamping for the second time.

Thanks for stopping by. Sending you all healthy vibes so that you can avoid getting sick!!!

Oh Kerry, I'm so sorry your house is sick! I hope everyone feels better soon.

Your card is so pretty. I haven't gotten that set yet because I'm sure I wouldn't be able to do anything as gorgeous as this with it!
