2 Sketches 4 You and a photo

A quick post to share my 2 Sketches 4 You card using this last weeks sketch, #45. Most of the their team created circle cards but I saw the sketch as being a square card with a circle on it so here is my take.
I just had to show you the completely amazing goodness of the new embossed cardstocks from Core'dinations. I used one from the new Jenni Bowlin collection and two from the Cosmo Cricket collection. The wonderful thing about these cardstocks is all it takes is a little sanding and they can so stand alone.
Can you see these amazing details in the embossed papers? And I used my new Martha Stewart punch and a new little doily from Martha Stewart too.
And I just have to share this photo.
This is our oldest granddaughter and our youngest grandson! I love to see them interact.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
