Now I don't have any River Rock, but I do have Fine Linen (Papertrey Ink) and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with these colours.
I love it when a card comes together this easily - and turns out exactly as you hoped it would. Of course getting to use that beautiful butterfly stamp/punch set (Stampin' Up) pretty much always makes me happy. What can I say - I'm easy. ;-)
The 'Dessert Option' this week is brads, and I sort of used it. Since I wanted a Mail Friendly card, I chose to use my Sakura gel pen wherever I would have added brads (or bling) ... and I love how the pen marks catch the light when the card is turned.
I also really like the tone-on-tone look you get when combining dry embossed card stock with regular pieces -- all the same colour! I wasn't a huge fan of this colour card stock (one of the problems with ordering on-line) but it really worked well for this card and it may end up growing on me.
One more card towards my cousin's card order ...
Thanks for stopping by today.
