Nacho... my first!

Nacho Average Challenges is another one of those sites I frequently check out but have never been able to participate with.  When Sketch #159 came up,  I looked at it a couple times,  then was elbow-deep in my paper stash when I decided,  "This is it!"  I wanted to used this patterned paper and I felt that the sketch lent to it...

Here's the sketch:

And here's my little card:

  • Simple Stories DP, DCWV teal cardstock,  Becky Higgins Project Life cards, and grey Core'dinations cardstock (though it's super-flimsy... not impressed)
  • Generic "Thank you" stamp stamped with Color Box Archival Ink in Coral, then restamped  (offset) with clear embossing powder using Tim Holtz's Distress embossing ink 
  • Viva Pearl Pen in Anthracite 
  • Grey sequins
