It's A HOT Sunday

And I can't think of doing much...
it's too darn hot to go outside...
and too 'sticky' inside...
oh well...

Today I have a challenge entry card for

"Score Lines"
I learned this technique a few months ago
from the Stampin' Up rep in my area..
she does a monthly card class and a tools and techniques class
Oh how I love them so much ...
we have a blast... just a few ladies getting together each month with these fun projects...
so anyway she taught this 'Faux Tile' Technique
and I thought it was just perfect for this challenge
You take your card stock and score it every inch or half inch (like I did here)
in 1 direction then turn your card stock 90 degrees and score the same lines that direction...
its best if you use a score board like I have the Martha Stewart score board and LOVE IT...
then after you have the 'grout' lines you then stamp your image over them...
I like to sponge the edges to make it 'pop'... 
then I used a different card stock to stamp the sentiment...
I added some designer paper to the corners then the faux title over that...
added a little bow and there you have my card for today...
I hope you find this post helpful ...
I hope it's good enough to win this weeks
If you should have any questions about this technique just leave me a comment, 
I will try to answer your questions...heehee
Happy Crafting Everyone
Have a wonderful work week to come...
