Gorgeous Grunge - a Convention Make & Take

Hey!! I'm back from my travels!! I had a wonderful vacation with my daughter and granddaughters in Georgia. We went to Tybee Island, Savannah, and Atlanta.  We had a ball (except for the jellyfish sting Bryn got, not once but twice!) I was exhausted by the time I got home and I left 3 days later to go to Salt Lake City for my Stampin' Up! Convention. It was a big celebration for their 25th anniversary and by the time I got home, I was exhausted again!! I need to stay home for a while and rest up!

The card I made today was a Make & Take from convention, but I didn't make it there, so it was a Take & Make.  I changed it just a little, mostly because I don't have a Crisp Cantaloupe marker yet, and I wanted it mounted on Coastal Cabana. I think it makes the card a lot classier.

Here's the directions and sample.

And here's my card.

Stamp sets - Hello Lovely, Gorgeous Grunge, Petite Pairs
Card stock - Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer paper
Ink - Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Summer Starfruit, Old Olive
Accessories - 1 3/4" circle punch, Epic Day This and That Washi Tape, Button, White Baker's twine (run through the Coastal Cabana ink pad, holding it down with a sponge dauber)

(inside of card)
