PTI Make It Monday and CPS #210

Okay, this card is going into two challenges for this week.

The MIM video over at Nichole's blog shows a really neat technique this week-- how to use an Impression Plate on only part of your cardstock. This is something that I have done quite often with Embossing Folders and love the finished look.

The second challenge is for Card Positioning Systems. I like working with sketches and this one lends itself to so many variations, I am sure to be using is again.
Check out the DT cards and all the other entries here:
