Since the kids are both at school today (I have one in preschool that only goes part time), I thought I'd get back on track and get a card created. We visited family in Seattle, Wa. over the weekend and I needed to come up with a Thank You card. No, I didn't have any in my inventory, believe it or not. Oh darn, an excuse to make one. he he!
This card makes me think of warm cozy Sunday nights, hot tea, fuzzy socks and the kids giggling under their livingroom forts. I used the sketch from Retro Sketches challenge #78. It was a fun one. Lots of room to be creative!
Here is what I came up with... I love everything about this card. Love the colors, love the textures, love the layers, love the leaves... Many loves!
Cardstock ~ Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze
DSP ~ Sweater Weather
Ink ~ Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Pear Pizzaz, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Baja Breeze
Stamp Sets ~ French Foliage (retired), Harvest of Thanks (Holiday Catalog)
Others ~ Woodgrain embossing folder, Apothecary Accents, Artisan Label punch, Adorning Accents Edgelits
*Non-Stampin' Up! brass brads, linen
Whew! That was a lot. It took me a good part of 3 hours to complete this card. I kept changing things and adding things as I went along. Of course I really didn't have a plan except for the sketch. I love my whims!
WHOOP WHOOP!!! This card was chosen as the RetroSketches ROCKstar!
