Card Patterns 76, Color Throwdown 104 - My Favorite Things


This is a triple hitter! It's a thank you card to send to the wonderful folks at My Favorite Things, plus a card to submit for the current Color Throwdown #104 and for the Card Patterns sketch 76.

I love the images of todays stamps, but occassionally I get caught up in the current colors, themes and the such... Every now and then it's nice to use a very modern stamp and still be able to make it work in a more detressed, aged card. I also love to use up old supplies...it's an awesome feeling when you find that piece of paper that just seems to fit the mood you're looking for. This old stuff from Provo Craft worked perfectly. I added some chipboard letters from We R Memory Keepers, modified to fit the color scheme, a perfect resting place for this cute stamp.

Originally I had brads in the upper right corner to keep with the sketch. They just seemed like after-thoughts. So, instead I found some butterflies I could stamp... adding some sepia stippled ink over all of the stamped images helped tone them down to match the feel of the paper. I am very happy with the way it turned out...
