Today I'm playing along with another of Connie & Mary's fabulous sketch challenges (CCMC289). Here's the sketch:
And here's my card.
I'd already inked up this bicycle stamp in Pumpkin Pie from the Timeless Talk set
and it was
just waiting to become part of a new card. I looked at my Color Coach to
see what combinations I could use with Pumpkin Pie and came up with Old
Olive and Pacific Point. Yay! I have some brand new Striped Pacific
Point ribbon from the Occasions catalog that I hadn't used, so I got
that out to play with and made the larger pennant. Then I used one of
the stamps from the Sale-a-Bration Banner Blast set for the smaller
pennant. I used the Arrows Embossing Folder from the Occasions catalog
and embossed a strip of Pumpkin Pie card stock and cut one strip of
arrow for the diagonal piece. I finished off the card with the Happy
Birthday Sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes using the Modern Label Punch set off with Old Olive Candy Dots.
When I showed my DD the card (she is my best critic--I really value her opinion even if she's only 14!), she said, "Did you use a staple? That's new." I think she approved.
