CPS and 2 Sketches 4 You cards

Sunday starts a new Card Positioning Systems sketch and it also means the last day to post a card using the last weeks 2 Sketches 4 you sketch so I'm getting in on both today.
This card uses the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch #44 by Laura. I just love to play along with their team when I have the time and this gave me a really great reason to show off this amazing new embossed cardstock from Core'dinations! It is from the Cosmo Cricket collection where the embossed design is already in the cardstock, it just needs a little bit of sanding. I took the photo of a yummy cupcake my daughter brought home the other day thinking that this would make a great way to tell a friend Happy Birthday.
I added a little strip of a printed transparency by Prima across the card and can you guess - I have a new Martha Stewart border punch! LOVE those things and this one is just precious. The letter for "sweet" are by My Little Shoebox and I coated them with Aleene's Paper Glaze so they look like they have an epoxy coat.
This is my Card Postioning Systems card for this next week. Some of the gals will be playing with JustRite stamps on their cards. I really wasn't part of the group that was to play with their stamps but since I have so many, I just had to pull mine out.
I stamped it with Versafine black and I did emboss it with clear embossing powder. I just love the finished look with the embossing. I added a couple little Queen & Co rhinestones so my card had a touch of bling.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
