My family is growing!

My Stampin' Up! family that is!  Today I welcomed three new downline to my family; Mandy, Sheila and Laura.  Welcome girls!  I had so much fun today.  I am exhausted though, so I am going to have to be quick with my post tonight. I still have to pack for tomorrow's workshop and practice the solo I am singing at church tomorrow morning! Plus I am on Praise Team so I have to be at church early.  This night looks like it might be longer than I had originally planned. :(

I really loved the sketch at Mojo Monday this week.  When haven't I though? :)
I had originally made a different card, but then realized I had used the wrong sketch!  I don't know where I came up with the sketch I used because I drew it out from the site. I must not be very good at copying!  I came up with one for this sketch though. :)

For the background, I inked up the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder with Basic Gray ink and then ran it through the Big Shot. I love this effect!  I think it looks especially classy with the gray!  The back banner and flower rosette are Riding Hood Red cardstock that I crinkled and then spritzed with my homemade silver Smooch Spritz.  You sure have been seeing that a lot, huh? :)  The flower is made with the largest flower on the Fun Flowers Bigz Die.  I punched out three of them and glued them together after scrunching them up.  The gray behind the sentiment was stamped off to get a lighter background for the sentiment. I haven't used Perfectly Penned in awhile and I thought it really added to the classy look of this card!
