You Rock!

Happy Wednesday!  We have been experiencing some really bad weather in North Carolina the past couple of days.   Tornado warnings, hail, and strong winds.  We dismissed school early today due to flash flood warnings.   

Anyway, I really needed to get crafty today!   I am playing along with Papertrey's Make It Monday Challenge.  This week is about paper scraps pie chart.  I figured it look easy enough so I gave it a try.  I am also using this week's Retro Sketch.  I decided to layer and mix some patterns and frames for this card.  I am also using the colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.

I inked up my PTI Four Square set for this.  Everything is popped for for added dimension.  I did some tone on tone frame stamping and finished with my YOU ROCK sentiment in black to mimic the newspaper look of the background patterns.  I finished my card with one black enamel dot in the center of my pie scraps!  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
