Thanks a bunch

Hello everyone.  I've been busy trying to finish my sons bedroom.  His furniture is still sitting in the dinningroom.  Last night we had to make a trip to Home Depot for new trim.  I had sanded the old, and some of the paint had sanded off.  When I put the new paint on, it's kind of transparent and would never totally cover without doing many coats.  Just finished the first coat on the new trim.  Looks great. 

With being back to work, I can make time in the evenings for crafting again.  And have managed to finish this card.  I really enjoyed trying the new technique put up by Crafty Card Makers-Spotlight Challenge-Spotlight Technique.  I first stamped the flower pattern in a brown distress ink twice.  On one I stamped over with a word stamp in a lighter brown.  I then cut out a square using a punch and colored it with markers, and placing it over the first one with foam squares.  I have seem this technique but never tried it, thanks Crafty Card Makers for giving me that little push.

The sketch I used for this card is from Card Patterns-Sketch 78.

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy crafting ;o)
