TSSC 12 - Faux Brick


I have sinned.

I covet these stamps. My friend Valerie just signed on as a Close To My Heart Consultant and brought these stamps over Friday for me to look at. Of course I love them, and that wicked, wicked, evil girl knows that they will be on my next order. So which is a bigger sin -- coveting the stamps or giving in to the impulse to buy them?

In any case, my sketch card for Mary Jo Price Williams' Technostamper Sketch Challege uses the Faux Brick Technique from the April 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter as the background piece. The stamps are from the aforementioned coveted set from Close To My Heart. My evil friend let me christen them on Friday,and I just wrote the check out for my own set. Sigh.
I did take a small liberty with the sketch by adding an additional element behind the front panel, but I think I can be forgiven for that. The original sketch is below. Check out Mary Jo's blog to see the other sketch players this week.

This a great card Pat and I'm a big fan of CTMH, mostly the paper but every now and then I'm suprised with a few stamp sets that I have to have.
