Good morning all! I wanted to share a card that I am entering for the Retro Sketch #46 challenge.
And here is the sketch:
I really enjoyed working with this sketch. The possibilities are endless! I decided to go with a color block look using primary colors. I like how this turned out. I stamped Happy Birthday first then ran the card base through my Grand Calibur, embossing only the bottom of the card. I rubbed the Chestnut Roan ink pad over the embossed image to make it stand out a bit better. After stamping and heat setting the birch trees, I trimmed the three card stock colors to size and adhered them to a black frame. That was adhered to my card base with foam squares. The owl was then stamped, fussy cut, and adhered with another foam square.
An update on my Father in law: he's doing sooo much better at home! He's eating more, (home cooking beats hospital food ANY day!), and gets stronger every day with his therapy sessions. Yeah Dad!! ♥
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope that you have a fabulous day!
