Good morning, everyone!
I got to play with some new stamps this week (something I haven't done in quite awhile). I had so much fun and can't wait for summer vacation to begin so that I can do it more often.
This card was made for a special brother-in-law who has a birthday, TODAY!!! He's probably already received it in the mail, but I couldn't wait to post about it.
|I carried the stripes over to the inside for the sentiment, which sort of tied the inside and outside together. I really love how this turned out.|
I did need a sketch to get me going (I'm feeling a little out of practice), so the Deconstructed Sketch No. 102 gave me some inspiration. I coupled that with the ColourQ Challenge #191 to come up with a great card for Steve.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my card today! Stop back and see more great cards as I begin making them over the summer!
