Watercooler Challenge WWC75 - Deborah's Sketch Challenge

Thank you for the Honorable Mention.  I am also sharing it with Maria Vanderform, and her beautiful card.  I am proudly displaying my badge today.

My card this week is a combination of black, white and gold.  The rose from the stamp set "Lotus Blossom", was stamped first in black, and then with versamark and embossed in gold.  I then layered it up with "Gold Soiree Specialty dsp", and with black card bases, and then topped the card off with gold brads.

This again, was a fun challenge!  Lots of inspiration from the Watercooler Artists.  Until next time, Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Stamping!   Heather :)


  1. Hi Heather, what a clever card! The first thing that jumped out at me was how perfectly matched your background designer paper was to the same background for the little square and then I realized that you had not matched designs extraordinarily well but rather had done something even more clever. You've cut into the background to have the cut "flap" provide a background for the little square. Love it! Love the way you planned that. The results are wonderful! The gold embossing, dsp, and brads really pull the front together and add to its elegance. And then one opens up the card and the craftsmanship continues. I love it, Heather. This is a beautiful card! Thanks so much for joining us this week for our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.

  2. Awesome card Heather. I really like the gold/black combo and the clean lines of your card. Your photos this week are just super and really show off the details of your card. Well done!
