Sandy Thoughts

So I decided to play along with last week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge!  I loved the sketch, but just couldn't get it to look like I wanted it to.  I even made two attempts with different patterns that I sanded and brayered.  I made the effort, so you will see it here.  I used some Coredinations card stock and cut it into to strips.  Then I embossed and sanded or brayered, depending on the color I needed to contrast with.    Sorry for the poor quality photo.  I had sunshine streaming in my window behind my infinity board and my photo looks a little washed out.  Sunshine has been a stranger lately in these parts.  The weird thing is that it is here again today!  Catch you later friends, I'm going to go out and enjoy it!

Details: Stamps: Circular Sayings (Verve; Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Going Gray, Coredinations; Ink: Basic Black; Accessories: sanding block, All My Love embossing folders, scallop circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, TE tiny twinkles, quickie glue pen, scallop border punch, M's black satin ribbon, stampin' dimensionals, glue dots, brayer.
