Toy Chest from Hambo Stamps

Good day!  It has been cooler these last couple of days, with rain showers off and on.  While the rain has helped disperse the pollen blanketing the city, it has done nothing to cheer up my mood.  It is days like this I am even more thankful for my craft room full of sunshine...aka crafty goodness and supplies.

I love this digi stamp Toy Chest from Hambo Stamps.  I colored it with watercolor pencils and used a small amount of water to blend the colors.  I didn't include a sentiment because I feel it could be used for so many different themes.  However, it seems to scream 'Missing You!' to me.

I used kraft card stock to make the A2 size card base.  ( 4 1/4" x 5 1/2")  The paper for the mats are from my scrap pile.  I believe the patterned paper is from a Recollections paper pad, and the lined card stock is from Creative Memories.  I am not sure about the green card stock or the brown print paper.  I added the eyelets to the green plaid, then after mounting to the kraft card stock I didn't like the way the kraft paper showed through.  I added gold glitter glue to the center of the eyelets and am really happy with the way they turned out.  They look like a decorative button with a glass center. I finished the card off with a black ribbon.  

This card will be presented for this weeks Hambo Hoedown 62 "Four of Something"  four mats for the image.

Thank you for stoping by to visit.  I hope you enjoyed my card.
Have a wonderful day!
