Using my We R prize!
You know that feeling when you look at a card and think, "Wow, that's the best one I've made in a long time," well, I had that feeling when I finished up this card. The papers are from a prize I won from We R Memory Keepers on their Facebook page in the summer. I liked the Princess Royale papers but had a hard time picturing them as anything but spring, until I had the idea to ink the edges with brown. By choosing papers without pink or lavender and darkening the edges, this card takes on an autumnal feel. :)
I used this sketch from OWH, but I turned it on end.
I also used a set of Scrappy Cat stamps (Bandanarama) for the first time. My mom bought me a pile of their stamps when she went to Ohio in May and many of them are not my typical picks (but were very cheap), so I'm working my way through them as I can. The "you" is from Heidi Grace, I think, but the package is gone so I can't be sure. Other tools were a heart punch by Marvy, border punch by Fiskars, and tag corner punch by SU.
Thanks for stopping by!
