Postage Doily

I wanted to play along with the sketch challenge at the Freshly Made Sketches site.  I love this sketch!  When LeAnne said this is her “go to” sketch, I had to laugh because it is one that I use as my “go to” sketch also.  It’s just a versatile sketch, I guess!

I haven’t used the Postage Due stamp set very much since I got it, and I love it.  So I pulled it out for this sketch.  I embossed it on the gray card stock with clear embossing powder and then tried to distress it with some Crumb Cake ink and a sponge dauber and my scissors.  With all of the coordinating punches and dies that Stampin’ Up sells, this was a pretty quick and easy card to make.

Enjoy your Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by!
