Sunset

I needed a really quick birthday card for a guy yesterday, so pretty much threw this one together.  VERY basic design and all that - but as I said, I needed it quick!


The image is from Crackerbox Palace and I stamped it in Versa Mark and then heat embossed with black.   I don't have but a couple of the TM Distressed Inks so ended up sponging around it with some SU Daffodil Delight.....added some "rope" (twine) around the image and plopped on the star brad.......A "git er' done" card!

Thanks for stopping by.............If I ever get my mojo going I'll be back more often - as it is, it's lacking big time and I seem to struggle with everything I'm doing.  Plus, life just keeps butting in all the time!
