Amazing: CAS(E) this sketch!

Amazing: CAS(E) this sketch!

Well all, I tried, I tried to stay away from using this Amazing sentiment again, 
just couldn't do it.

I saw a stamp block that resembles the sketch flower.
I really do not have many flower stamps.  
I do, but not a super large variety.
I picked up my Penny Black Constellations.  
I then saw my trusty Amazing sentiment.
Ok, I will see...

On  Personal Note:  Skip down past this next paragraph and dont' read if you don't want to hear a stampaholic grumble and vent.
(You other PNW'ers will also shed a tear with me when I learned that Impress in Bellevue Square Mall closed.  Gaspppp... I actually have to drive south to Tukwilla, eeeeek.. No more mid week power shops
at the Mall when Conrad is at Karate.  Tukwilla, though not far, it is far enough.  I still need more than an hour and a half  to trek there and spend ample shop time..gaddds.
 WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO?
I overheard that the Mall 'upped the lease and opted for a higher paying renter.  A cosmetic company that puts real gold in the creams or something ridiculous like that.  If you are like me, you will forego a decent haircut awhile longer if you can get a few stamp set instead LOL!!!!)
Anyway, I should not complain, there are places to live where you have to mail order only.  Sorry folks, 
I am too privileged and stamp crazed, I apologize.  
We just have lost alot of great stores in this area, and I hate to see small business go.
ESPECIALLY stamp stores...
I got it good. 
So complaint session over.

Well  onto this card.

Simple black number with red buttons, I mean red rose Impress embellishments.

(If you know me, I start to talk about cards like clothes
 when there is a new season of 
Project Runway! )
Supplies:
Penny Black Constellations Stamp
Impression Obsession Amazing Sentiment
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Impress Red Rose Embellishments

Close up sweet Rosettes!

First, love the card - that stamp is fabulous. So perfectly clean and simple! Second, I'm shedding a tear for you! It is so sad to see a store like that close - it's like a good friend moving away. Seriously! Yeah, you can still make the trek out, but it's just not the same. All because the landlords wanted to line their pockets a little more. Just not right :(

This indeed is ah-mazing love the pop of color on black and white :) and I so agree with you, I too forego a lot of things just to buy at a craft store :) There's nothing more satisfying than purchasing crafts ;) LOL

How did I miss this card?!! Just popped over to see the winners at CTS, and here you are! Big congrats!! Well done and well deserved.
Closing stamp/scrapbook stores...I can totally relate. While we have a Michaels and Hobby Lobby, it's not that special, personal kind of shop. The nearest one is 30 minutes away, and another is 45...so I know exactly what you mean. So sad, so sorry. Your card is beautiful. Love it. Bev
