CardMaker Magazine and Lil' Inker Designs Blog Hop

Our theme is ANYTHING GOES!  This gave me the perfect opportunity to use a set that was released a while back but have fallen in love with again.....So Prickly.  I've paired it with the newly released Silly Stitched Squares Dies for some layers on my card.  One of the layers is from the coordinating So Prickly paper pack.

My cactus image was stamped with my FAVORITE inks from Fresh Ink by Impress Cards and Crafts.  (what's even better, they are having a local sale and later this weekend an on-line sale-----not to enable or anything!)  I stamped the cactus in the main color and then added shading with a darker/different color using my Misti.  My cactus was hand trimmed and added with foam adhesive.  The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a thin strip of black cardstock, ends trimmed into a banner, and adhered with foam adhesive.
