Thinking of You

My last IO order included the beautiful Sketch Roses stamp which I've had my eye on for a long time.  So glad I finally got it--will be used a lot! 
For this card I white embossed on Bristol paper & colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers & a water brush.  This is a large square stamp, but I just cut off a strip & added silver glitter tape to the edges.  Here's a close up showing the effect of spritzing with Perfect Pearls. 
The sentiment is from IO Anytime Sentiments & once again I've used my favorite Brilliance Graphite Black.  I got this set a year ago & need to keep it out so I remember to use it.  The sentiments are great & most of them haven't been used.  I'm  entering Impression ObsessionHLS Watercolor, SSS Wednesday & SSS Work it Wednesday.  Ready or not, here comes 2018!  I have some exciting news to share on Jan. 2, so hope you'll pop in again.
Fritz got a new toy--thought you might enjoy these pictures. 
Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
