I did this card on the weekend, for my SIL birthday. I used Sketch Saturday again for the layout. The stamped image an Art-Kure stamp coloured with a water colour brush and Ranger Distress Ink in Demin Jeans. The squares are embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and highlighted with Distress Ink. The senitment stamps is from Personal Impressions. Im not sure what the papers are as it was a piece of left over scrap. I finished the card off with some buttons.
