Clare *Day 5*

I'm lovin' this next card by Clare:Don't you just love the way Clare uses her die cuts?? This is so innovative! I love the red and grey color combo! The colorblocking using pp adds great visual interest. And this card also has another of my favorite Clare trademarks-- a perfectly tied and perfectly placed bow!

Here is my take: See you tomorrow with our last card from Clare!
Supplies--Stamps: Sentiment (Hero Arts CL394), Elephant and Paisley (CL400), Crackle (Rubber Stampeded); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Black Ink (Stampin' Up), Copic Markers (R29, YR68, C7); Other: Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media), Gems (Brenda Walton for K&Company), Misc. Cardstock and Thread
