My item is a 5" x 7" card.  I saw a sketch this week by Freshly Made sketches and knew that this set had to be made into that sketch. 

Here is the sketch that I used.  Isn't it perfect for this set?

Autumn Winter New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to our Autumn-Winter new product blog hop!  Our new Autumn-Winter 2013 Idea Book just went live August 1st and we thought this would be a super opportunity to show off some of the new product.  Today I am going to give you a small sampling a few of the amazing new product in the Idea Book.  I am in love with the new M-size stamps.  I also have been wanting to use the Ombre' technique and I knew "A True Thank You" (M1029) would be the perfect stamp to work with this technique because of the open letters!  Here is the featured stamp:
I am also featuring the LAUGHLING LOLA papers and the Laughling Lola Complements Dimensional Elements:

My project is a 4.75" x 4.75" card that I was planning on entering into a couple of online challenges but alas, a day late and a dollar short as the saying goes. 

Just a quick mention that I used the following Freshly Made Sketches # 98 and was going to enter it into there challenge but I missed the deadline.  Oh well...

The next photo actually shows a close-up of the Ombre letters created with our Alcohol Markers and the blending pen.  You also get a better look at the dimension of the Laughlin Lola Dimensional Elements and the bling!

Papers:  Laughling Lola Paper Packet, Laughling Lola Gold, Black, and White Daisy Cardstocks
