First, though, I want to share a card I made for this weeks Splitcoast Stamper's Wednesday Tutorial....it's right on the front page....Whoohoo!!! Here is the link to the Bargello tutorial.
Recipe: Stamps: Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies Paper: White, Night of Navy, Basic Grey's Lime Rickey Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black Accessories: Nestabilities, Button, Twine

Joan, I absolutely MUST try this technique soon, every time you've used it I've been impressed by how good it looks. Hope you feel a bit more brain-alive now, you need to work less and craft more, he he. CoB

Very cool card! I've had the directions to make a Bargello but haven't done so. The post on SCS reminded me and you are so honored that your card was shown as the example!
