Miss You!

When I saw today's sketch the first thing I thought of doing was the Rhinestones down the center of the ribbon.  So the first thing I did was look at which ribbon I wanted to use.  Once I had chosen the Quilted Satin Ribbon from the Holiday Mini I checked to see which designer paper I had to go with it.  I know it says Early Espresso on the ribbon, but I found that mine matched the Chocolate Chip Cardstock better.  Thankfully both were in the Designer sheet that I chose.  One of the great things about the Designer paper in the catalog compared to what you buy in the store is you can look at the paper in the catalog and it will tell you what colors it matches with.  Behind the stamped bench, which is embossed, I used the clear block method.  I wanted something slight so I took my the clear block I had the stamp on and pressed it in the River Rock ink pad.  Then I stamped it on the paper, cut around it and rounded the corners.  I stamped the bench with Early Espresso and  used the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp over it with Versamark so that I could emboss it.  Of course every edge was sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.  The flower centers are done with the small side of the crop-a-dile.   I do not have a small enough circle punch and it works perfect.  I keep an old CD that I put a dab of Mono-adhesive on and use a toothpick to apply glue to the smaller items.  I know the set I go the sentiment from is called Three Little Words and I had every intention of using the Three Little Words until I decided what punch I wanted to use and saw what fit. So it is Two Little Words instead...Lol
