Better Late Than Never

Greetings from Las Vegas! We went and saw the Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian last night and it was AMAZING! The sets, the chandeliers, the performances were all just stellar.

I meant to have this posted first thing this morning, but things never really go as planned, especially on vacation. The card was my take on the Gettin' Krafty Project Parade Challenge that ended today. I finally got one of those paper corrugator crimper thingies (you know, the ones that were popular like 6 years ago? LOL). I've always wanted one, so I finally splurged. Doesn't it look cool on the Baja Breeze? I went with a sand & sea color pairing, inspired by the kraft paper and added some glassy pebbles and some hemp as accents.

What's in it?
Stamps: Petals & Stems, So Happy (Verve)
Paper: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze
Ink: Baja Breeze, Close to Cocoa, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: hemp, long scallop rectangle nestabilities, paper crimper, Dew Drops, page pebble, Stardust Stickles

  8. Such a refreshing card. I have one
    of those crimpers. It doesn't get
    as much use anymore, but in this case here, it really works.
