Plant Some Hope
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I had a great time meeting so many new people at the yard sale, and look forward to seeing some of you again at my Open House this coming Sunday (2-5 PM). Please stop by! You'll get to see the projects I'm sharing this week in person, plus many more, and make some cards of your own to take home. Plus I always have tasty treats to share, and what's not to love about that?
I am in love with FTL149 over at Clean and Simple Stamping. This is the first of two cards I whipped up with this great layout yesterday--this one is great for a guy, and you'll see tomorrow that my other version is much more frilly and feminine. Plant Hope is the star of this card, and I inked the bonsai tree in Old Olive. My sentiment--a natural for Earth Day--is also from this great stamp set, and I used Not Quite Navy.
My color combination is from Paisley Petals DSP, which I used for the banner down the center of the card. I added River Rock and Bravo Burgundy to round out my colors, and my finishing touch was a punched burgundy scallop trim border.
It's going to be a great week! Stay tuned.
