You Rock! Retro Sketches #38

Hey, I'm back with the second of 3 (count 'em...3) posts for today.  This has been a nice relaxing Sunday.  My husband and I have been watching Christmas movies (I know...already!) on the Hallmark channel, while I stamp.  So nice :o)

So, I'm sharing a card that I made for the Retro Sketchs #38 challenge.

In October I attended a Stampin' Up! party.  One of the new products that our (favorite) demonstrator, Kris, showed us was the Core'dinations card stock and the sanding blocks.  Well I brought home the panel I embossed, and sanded and I've been looking for the right card to use it.  I needed to make a masculine card today, and this panel was just what it needed!

This card came together quickly, and it's pretty straightforward.  A couple of layers, some foam tape, 3 brads and a sentiment.  That just about covers it.  I'll list my supplies below.
Thanks for taking a look today!

Card stock: island indigo, very vanilla, early espresso
Ink: early espresso (Stampin' Up!)
Designer Series Paper: festival of prints stack (SU)
Stamps: grunge me  (Papertrey Ink)
Other: double ended banner die (PTI), Christmas mint brads (s.e.i.), foam dots


  1. Very Cool card - sleek! Love the colors and it could easily go for a masculine card too. Great job! The panel looks awesome on that card. You rock!!

  2. FAB card Susie! LOVE the added texture!
