ICS #37 and my debut!

Today is my first day as Design Team member over at Inspirational Card Sketches! Check it out! Dawn always has wonderful card sketches. Here is this week's sketch:

And here is what I did with it:

So I used the new BG "Eskimo Kisses" line of papers (so cute!) for everything except the sentiment. I cut the flower on my cricut from the Winter Woodland cartridge and the sentiment box from Storybook. I layered the flower after using Distress Ink aged mahogany on the edges. I also inked the sentiment box. After it was all put together I used the new Rock Candy stickles along the edges of the flower and sentiment box. The stuff is clear but it seems to soak up some of the ink as it dries, and it really does look a little like rock candy when it's dry. It is so cool! I will be using my Rock Candy sticles a LOT! lol

Thanks for looking!
