The Birthday celebrations continue on over at the OWH Stars & Stamps blog. This challenge was to create a card using Sketch #85.
I am enjoying all of the challenges. Better yet, I am getting lots of ideas and my pile of cards is growing. I will be able to send off a shipment before long. Be sure to check out the web site - Operation Write Home - if you are interested in finding out more on what you can do to support them.
My card base is kraft cardstock from the Paper Studio. I was able to use a 40% off coupon at my local Hobby Lobby. You can't get any better than that. I really like the look of the kraft paper, however I am not thrilled with how my other papers are adhering to it. I will keep looking for an adhesive that works better than the ones I have tried.
The patterned paper is by K&Company - Brenda Walton's Around the World specialty paper pack. I really like the colors and how the papers go together so well.
The sentiment stamp I found at my local Michaels and is by g studio. The light house is one of my mother's from when she was making stamps...Hopefully when I go to visit next month I can raid some more. Since I colored the stamp with water color pencils and a Marvy Blender pen I chose to use water color paper. The paper doesn't peel up as much as regular cardstock does.
Thanks for stopping by and looking. Have a wonderful day and an amazing weekend!
