After a pretty crappy day yesterday, I decided to go play in my stamp room a bit before I went to bed. Making a card is the perfect cure for the blahs! I wanted to play along with a couple of challenges, so I decided to combine the Pals Paper Arts color challenge to use River Rock, Soft Suede, and Early Espresso with the Friday Mashup challenge to make a Thank You or Gratitude card.
Now I make a lot of cards and I like some of them, LOVE others, and hide a few too. This card is one that I LOVE and I'm amazed at how well it turned out! I have been trying to use some stamp sets that have collected a bit of dust, so that's where I got the Vintage Vogue inspiration. I wasn't sure about brown flowers, but I am in love with them! I think this card will go in my "I'm keeping it forever" stash. :) Now it is an overcast day here in Texas, so my photo truly doesn't do this one justice. I tried different locations and different lighting, but it just wasn't happening today. I really need to get that light tent ordered!
