I'm in Trouble!!

I am up way to late tonight and I am gonna be in trouble once tomorrow comes!!! I promised my Mom I would come help her clean, and I should probably(definitely) get some sleep before then. At this rate, I will be lucky to get 6hrs. and let me tell you, I don't function well with less than eight. I have always wished I could, but have never been able too. I can't take naps either, so that is working against me too. I don't know about you, but every time I try to take a nap, I wake up feeling worse than when I started out!! I knew I would be gone the better part of tomorrow, so I wanted to get the color challenge for Tuesday done. The challenge was to use Basic Grey, Whisper White and Soft Sky. The card base is BG and then layered with Soft Sky and Whisper white. The edges were sponged with SS ink to soften them. I added a piece of SS DSP to the bottom and wrapped a piece of SS ribbon around the two top layers to hide the seam. Since I love ribbon(and really, who doesn't)I added a piece of Basic Grey taffeta and White grosgrain ribbon to it too. The sentiment was stamped on WW with BG and punched out with the small oval punch. I sponged the edges of that piece heavily to really make it stand out. Because you all know that I LOVE brads, I added some across the bottom, don't you love how they are alternating sizes. All the hardware came from the Stylized Silver Hardware from Stampin Up. I sure hope they keep it around, it is fabulous!!! The flower was stamped three times in Versamark on SS. I then covered it in white embossing powder and cut it out in three different layers. There are pop dots between each layer to give it some depth. I layered it on WW, SS, and BG and sponged the edges of that too. Once I had all that done, I thought that the top corner was a little to bare, so I used my neglected Ornare piercing template to give it a little something more. Well, that is all for me for tonight, must get some sleep for tomorrow or I will be a very unhelpful zombie!!! Thanks for looking and have a great day(or night, whatever your case may be!!)
