WMSC123- Vintage Seed Packet!!

Squeaking in my card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge before Bill's surgery tomorrow {DH}!! Although I do have some stamping plans for tomorrow late afternoon and evening, since he'll still be under the influence of anesthesia, LOL!!

This week's sketch was created by Lenet Mos.... fabulous!
Love, no, ADORE the Vintage Garden Seed Packet and all the Vintage flower/vegetable stamps that Clare released earlier in the fall but, hadn't had a chance to play with too many of them so... it was time to get this one inky. Look at all the fabulouse detail in these images!!

Used some Authentique papers along with SU early espresso and vanilla. The right panel was stamped with a grid image from Off Beat Backgrounds {really versatile set}, seed packet and pumpkin are from the Vintage Seed Packet set. The scallop borders were "flicked up" with my finger to add a little dimension. A little flag tag, seam binding ribbon/bow, and an opera tag stamped with the coordinating image to finish. Thinking the opera tag is probably a little bit too fancy for the "feel" of this card but, I just wanted to use it-it's just gorgeous, LOL!! Do you ever have days like that?

Lenet's sketch...



Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

Great card - love the colours. Was trying to figure out how you did the right side of the card when I realized it was a bitsy typo and you were meaning the left side of the card with the grid lines. Love the flipped up scalloped border too. Great work all round :)

You had me giggling away with your "seize the stamping opportunity" comment while hubby is under - you go girl LOL! As long as he isn't a puker like me after anesthetic you can carry on the with the drugs and get a bit more stamping time ;) In all honesty, hope things go smoothly and the post op goes well so he can get back to enjoying life pain free :)

Hope all goes well with Bill tomorrow! He has a great nurse to do some private duty work when he "comes to" - lol! Love this striped paper you used as well as that pop of orange ribbon!

Claire said...

Love all those papers and I think the little tag has finished it all off beautifully. Hope your hubbie recovers well!
