CARDS Blog Challenge!

Hello! I am excited to share my project with you today. You see, CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is the sponsor for the June CARDS Blog challenge! As part of the DT, we are invited to play along with the sketch.
My take
(CARDS) Virginia
 supplies: Frankly and Bold Wishes from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, Knee High from Basic Grey, Gold Embossing Powders (Michael's), Hero Arts Mid Tone Inks (Butter Bar, Raspberry), Simon Says Stamps Die Cut  (Banners), gems, sequin, fine black pen (for faux stitching)

The Girl Friday Ink Squad all have fabulous creations to share with you too! We thought it would be fun to do a little blog hop to make it easy and fun for you :) Be sure to leave a comment on each of the blogs as you hop along. One of the blogs...and it's still a mystery as to which one it will be...will have a random winner who will receive a really great prize!
 If you got lost or sidetracked along the way, here is the lineup: 
Kelly Griglione
Dana Seymour
Karen Baker
Michelle Woerner
Piali Biswas
Laurie Willison

The prize for the sketch challenge is really awesome but you'll have to make it through to the CARDS blog to see it (serious prize, people!!!)! Be sure to follow their instructions to include your project for your chance to win, you have until June 17th to play along.
