I'm really happy with this one. It's the last of the turquoise batch, but it was the first idea I had for the turquoise theme. You know when occassionally you have a sneaking suspicion what a gift is, and it's what tickles you the most, so it is left until the very last to prolong the build up? This card was the same thing for me. It came together quickly and easily because my mind had been working on it for the last month.

I used a stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure the images lined up. If you don't have a stamp-a-ma-jig or aren't sure how to use it, RUN to wherever to get one (big box craft store) and find a friend who knows how to use it! My ladies used it over and over and over at my last stamp-a-stack and were pleased as punch with themselves that they learned beyond a shadow of a doubt how to use it and what a can't-live-without-it tool it is.

I stamped the image in Black Soot and clear embossed it - it looks so elegant! Then I went a little gem happy. Too much bling? Nah!!!!

I'll take a group shot once I have the cards ready to go. Now, stay tuned for the next challenge!...
