Rock the Kasbah!

What a fab title for a post! However, I didn't just make it up, it is actually the name of this beautiful gem by Imaginisce...

As gems go, this has to be the largest I've ever seen in the crafting world...and you all know how much I love my bling lol!

I created the background with distress inks in fairly pale colours...I didn't want to clutter the card too much as I thought the gem made a statement all on it's own!

I have so many fave colour schemes but this definitely has too be one of my absolute faves.

The sentiment doesn't show up too well in the main photo but if you click on the picture you can see it much better.

Well, I've got one more day at work before the weekend...I am currently making some Christmas cards which I will be posting on my blog in the very near future...well you can never be too early can you!

  • Tim Holtz dsitress inks: Weathered wood
  • Adirondack ink: Latte
  • Damask stamp ( on central blue strip): Laundry Line
  • Background stamps: Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen
  • Dark blue edging stamp: Bo Bunny "Flourish"
  • Sentiment: Cloud 9
