Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder from Stampin’ Up!

For this weeks sketch challenge card for Stamping and Blogging I decided to use my Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder from Stampin’ Up!

whole-lot-of-lovely from stampin upI embossed it in one direction then flipped it over and embossed again to make it a check/plaid pattern.  I love how it turned out!

I stamped the thank you from one of the hostess sets called A Whole Lot of Lovely and added some calypso coral and watermelon wonder flowers with black candy dots and pearls which were coloured with a black sharpie.

A final flourish of some washi tape and some silver thread and it was done!
Why not give this sketch a try and make a card too and post it here at Sketch & Stamp.
