Hello, Howdy, Aloha, Ciao, Hey, Hola, Buenos Dias
I bought a new stamp - so I had to try it out - the stamp is by Stampabilities - a good stamp for Operation Write Home cards.
This card is based on the weekly sketch from Operation Write Home's blog Stars and Stamps.
I bought some new paper yesterday (Happy Mother's Day Barb) and wanted to use some of it. The plaid and the check that I stamped the sentiment are from My Mind's Eye - Kate and Co - Oxford Lane. I liked the colors - a little different than what I usually buy - I also though you could make some masculine cards from the paper. The brad is from them also. The dark blue that I matted with are from my table and the yellow is also some my scraps. I have lots of this yellow in my stash - I must have done a special project with it or was going to do a special project with it.
My take on the sketch is similar but not the same - my sentiment did not fit the dimension so everything else was adapted from there. I also felt everything needed to be grounded so matted the sentiment and the yellow embossed background.
Happy Mother's Day everyone.
