Kazan's Sketch 19

I'm so glad I was finally able to put a card together today. I've been struggling with this ear infection--feeling groggy on the meds, feeling dizzy off the meds--so I was surprised when my brain actually came up with something for Kazan's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You.

I used some of my new Core'dinations Black Magic cardstock. I love this stuff! I just embossed the black panel, then sanded it to reveal the red underneath. Cool, huh?

Paper: Cool Caribbean, Real Red, Core'dinations Black Magic Hypnotic
Accessories: flowers (Prima), brad (Making Memories), scalloped edge punch, ribbon (Michael's), stickers (Deja Views), Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, sanding block

Ear infections are the pits! Glad you are finally coming around.

The pop of red against the black background is fab. I really like the square rhinestone.
