Made in Las Vegas!

This is my very first card made in Las Vegas, NV!
I just moved from New York City to Las Vegas few days ago
Finally, I have my own craft room, although it is not fully set-up yet (still many boxes waiting to be opened), but kitchen item can wait, bedding item can wait, clothes and jacket, socks and shoes all can wait, but the paper and glue box has to be opened FIRST!


This is using the sketch from 2 sketches 4 you
Kazan's sketch 54




And I am using the colors from The Color Throwndown Challenge # 96




2 sketches 4 you and the color throwndown are few of my favorite challenge blog, do stop by and join in the fun, won't you?


Supplies:
Paper: My Mind's Eye, Dream Street Paper, Martha Stewart
Button: Papertrey ink
Ribbon: Martha Stewart
Flower: Prima

Beautiful card Kirsty! I love all the different shapes and textures. Great interpretation of the sketch.
P.S. I don't blame you for opening the crafting boxes first. LOL

Fabulous layout and love your use of the throwdown colors! Opening stamping supplies first is most definitely a priority! :-)

You are toooo funny! I think my DH would disagree....the bed and food would have to be tops on the list, THEN stamps! This is awesome, considering you just moved! You are da bomb! Good luck in LV!

Heather Jensen said...

Stunning Kirsty! Just the right balance of each color. Sounds like you have done what I did and just leave everything else and unpack your craft supplies first. Enjoy! :)

I am glad you made it safe and sound.
