TMS 257 with a twist!

Wow! Where did the week go!
I hope everyone had a very happy 4th of July!
Are you ready for another fun sketch?  This one has a twist!
The twist is to use blue, green and black!
Our wonderful and generous sponsor this week is Patti Rowe, CTMH Independent Demonstrator.
Now for the sketch -
Lots of fun possibilities and a great sketch for using up those scraps!

I dug out some of my oldest stamps for this card!  Years ago, when I first got the stamping bug, CTMH was known as DOTS.  These were some of the first stamps I ever purchased! 
I inked up two present stamps with Distress inks.  I stamped them off first before adding them to the panel to create a background.  Stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment and matted the panel to some black card stock before adding the black twine and button.  Popped this panel up with foam tape.  Used some scraps for the panels and added a vellum die cut edge topped with a strip of paper with some faux stitching.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the other DT members for some wonderful inspiration!  

Remember to add the twist (use blue, green and black) to be eligible for the prize! Have fun creating! 


  1. Oh, how cool! I love how you did the stamped panel - and you've gotta love that those stamps are just as useful as when you got them :)

  2. I love your present background!! This is such a pretty card!!


Thank you for your comments, they warm my heart!
