Hello and welcome to my blog!
I'm a wife of over 20 years to my supportive husband Dan and mother to our three children ages 18, 15 & 6. Rubber stamping and card making are my creative outlet and help to keep me sane but I also enjoy scrapbooking from time to time, reading historical fiction/historical romance novels and watercolor painting as well as spending time with family and friends. I hope you enjoy the projects I share here on my blog.
Good morning friends! It's Wednesday and time for the Color Throwdown Challenge. The talented Barbara is our hostess this week and she's chosen some great colors for us to work with.
I have a customer who requested a few Father's Day cards in her order so I used this week's colors to create two cards for her.
For this first card I used the Retro Sketches #13 Challenge for my layout along with the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Happy Day and Houndstooth. For both cards that I created I used mostly the same materials but just switched them up a bit and used different layouts. It may be difficult to see in the photo but I stamped the large houndstooth pattern along the bottom right corner in soft sky on top of the My Mind's Eye designer paper to add some texture to that area.
