Hey Sharlene! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment about my Sweet Sunday card. I had to come over and check out what you did with the sketch. Your card is soooo adorable! I just love that bunny! I am so tempted to get that set just to have him(her):) I know that I will definitely be ordering that DP because I have been admiring it on other cards as well. I see you used glossy white paper. Was that for your textured background? We used one of those textured backgrounds at a recent stamp camp and we decided that you need to put at least 2 shims in with the sandwich to get a nice texture. Otherwise, we thought it was too subtle. Guess we are all used to the Cuttlebug folders. Anyway, I wish I could click on your card and get a closer look at it because it is hard to see the texture in the background. I also wanted a closer look at your embellishements. I love that you popped that bunny too. I'm a nut about cutting and popping things myself. I love my cards to have depth.
Just one more thing I wanted to share with you. Here is a link to my SU demonstrators blog with a post of two cards that she used a texturized background on. It was the backgrond with the diamond shapes and she pierced the connecting points of all the diamonds so it looks like a quilted background. Very cool.
Come over and visit me anytime. I'm off to cruise your blog:)
