Super Sketch Sunday

I'm back with my second installment of Super Sketch Sunday.  It is still Sunday, isn't it?

This sketch is the layout we used yesterday at Stamp Camp.  You can see it's fairly simple in design with an element down in the lower right corner. 

In my project I was able to incorporate something I had not done in quite a while...embossing!  It is so fun to watch the powder melt into a glossy image I don't know why I don't do it more often!  The ship I used is from our Beware Pirates stamp set.  I embossed the image on our super cool Night & Day Specialty Paper.  This black and white paper is fantastic.  I've used it for Halloween, masculine themes, and it's elegant enough for weddings too.  However, it is only available for a limited time in our Holiday Mini Catalog so don't miss out!

Oh, and the wide striped ribbon ... LOVE  IT!  It's perfect for large square cards like this one.  (5.25" x 5.25" by the way).  The ribbon comes in Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and Basic Black.  It's so soft and easy to tie.  I didn't want a bow on this card since it was to be masculine so I just tied a loop instead. 

Black brads across the top add the "hard detail" to the card.  Something every project needs.

So, what do you think?
