I made this card for a friend and it was seriously way past her birthday when she got this. The good thing is that she loved it :-) and then told me about a store in the lobby of her office building that sells cards that are similar for like $7 each! Yeesh, I think we stampers do sell ourselves short. This particular friend is very, very good at always remembering people's birthdays and other holidays and sends cards out regularly. I think I might have to make her a bunch of cards so she'll have special handmade ones to send out instead of, gasp, store bought cards :-)
Can you tell that I really love the new InColors :-) The card base is Purely Pomegranate. The main images are stamped onto Kraft with Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky (which is really had to see in this pic) and Brilliance Moonlight White. The flowers and stems are from PapertreyINK's Green Thumb. The sentiment from Faux Ribbon is stamped onto Kraft with Purely Pomegranate and then I used my oval punches to punch it out and the mat behind it. I decided it was a little plain so I used some of my Hodgepodge Hardware and Black Gingham ribbon. This was matted on Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi before attaching it to the card base. This card made me remember how much I love using Kraft cardstock. I haven't been using it regularly but think I might have to start pulling it out again.
So, you probably won't hear much more from me for a few days. We're driving to Las Vegas later tonight for dh's family reunion and won't be back till late Sunday night. Wish us luck, 8 hours in a car with the kidlets--hopefully, they sleep the whole way :-)
Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
