Six for six challenge

 Hallo,
   A hot, hot day here in NW Florida and amazingly  enough not a drop of rain - I can't  even remember how many days it has been where we didn't get some rain....
   Puppy is restless even though she got a walk this morning after I got home from work and another short one just a bit ago - the short one just seemed to prime the generators on my little energizer puppy though....
   Todays card is for the last of the Birthday challenges over at Flourishes - check it out here - www.flourishes.org/blog . You still have plenty of time to join in and maybe win some Flourishes goodies :)!!!
  Todays challenge was a 6 part one - sketch - check,  colors - check, embossing - check, favorite stamp from Flourishes - check (as they are pretty much all my favorite) - now here is where it gets sticky - bling and ribbon - check but wasn't totally happy and not sure it 'works' (I took and old button and embossed it with old gold embossing powder and then tried many times to tie a bow with this ribbon , because the colors matched, and ended up with a loop instead.....I wonder if having only 4 hours sleep interfered with my bow tying abilities.....)
   I embossed the darker teal piece with dots and sanded off and to add a bit to the DP under that I used a sewing tool run through teal ink to make the faux stitching ....
   Well - my house is kinda a mess and I am thinking about getting in the pool for a bit (which the way this summer has been means it will probably start thundering about now....) so I had better get off the computer and get in gear....
   Have a great day!!!!
