A Ter-Ruff-ic Day

I'm continuing on with my farewell to the retiring sets with this card, using Ruff Day. I loved this set when I first got it, and like so many of my sets, used it only once or twice. Quite sad, actually. But having said that, I'm okay with it retiring, and therefore, selling it.

Did I mention how much I love Chatterbox paper? The colors and patters are SO me, and I really like the wallpaper texture. I've always loved blue, and the blue and brown combo is just so nice and soothing to me. This started out as a Sketch Challenge card from a month or so ago, and then changed too much for me to even call it that! I'm kinda happy with how he turned out, though.

Thanks for checking in! Tomorrow...more enabling. I've got another Inky Antics number for ya! ;)


Now for the fine print...
PP - Chatterbox; CS - Bashful, Cocoa, Celery, WW; Ink - Olive, Timber Brown and Black Stazon; Tool Kit; MM tab (sanded for more readability); Blue Gingham; Stamps - Ruff Day, A Muse Skinny Oval; Prismacolor Pencils, Gamsol, and stumps

ETA: Thank you for the wonderful comments on the piercing (among the other ones :)), but I wanted to make sure that I mentioned that I got the idea for the "inside out" piercing from Jen del Muro and the ATC that I received in her swap. She rocks, so make sure that you check out her blog here.


  1. Cute card! I like the way you used the reverse side of the faux stitching --- it punches out instead of in -- I will need to try that!
