{MTSC43} Inspired by Nature

It's Tuesday again and time to play along
with Mercy's fabulous Sketch Challenge! :D

For my monochromatic card I've used Inspired by Nature by Stampin' Up!, inked it in soft suede and clear embossed for dimension and sheen. The designer paper is from my stash and coordinated perfectly with the Stampin' Up! soft suede cardstock. The ribbon is polka dot soft suede but I've used the reverse side instead and attached a button with linen thread.

It's so fun to start with Mercy's layout, select my stamp set and away I go to the land of creativity! :)

Now, if you haven't already, you'll want to blog on over and see what Mercy's other Muses have created for our viewing pleasure today:

Cindy Haffner
Pam Varnell
Julie Lacey
Crystal Birr
Jackie Pedro
Jessica Diedrich

Shannan Teubner

Silke Ledlow (October Guest Muse)

You're *all* encouraged to participate! Just create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above, blog on over to Lord Have Mercy and link your creation with Mister Linky. Be sure to use the keyword MTSC42 when uploading to a public gallery. Mercy herself will be checking out each submission, so don't be surprised if she contacts you about being a guest designer for an entire month of Tuesdays!

Thanks for stopping by and please come back again soon!

Smiles 2 U!
