Grandfather's Birthday Card
I have NO idea why I didn't post this Saturday, or even yesterday. I guess I took a weekend vacation.
I've been puttering around with autumn-y cards and pulled out "Thoughts and Prayers" the other day to ink up the tree with some fall foliage. I pulled the sentiment from "Watercolor Trio"--it just seemed to fit. :o)
I struggled with this one. I needed something to balance out the bottom, but ribbon wasn't cutting it, and buttons were too big. I had three brads originally, but managed to get them off-center so had to add the fourth. Ah, well, I don't think GF will mind. ;o)
This card uses:
Stamp Sets: "Thoughts and Prayers", "Watercolor Trio"
Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Early Espresso
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Early Espresso (anyone else love love loving the deep, intense hue of this paper?)
Accessories: Neutrals brads
And, just because I can, I wanted to share my workspace with you. I'm already sharing it with a four year old girl, see? :oP
