Tame it up.

My dear readers, I am so sorry I have been slow with the posts. As much as I would love to be posting daily, I have been so busy that is virtually impossible to keep at it all. I have been helping with scholarship fundraising efforts for the violin school my children attend, besides cleaning and preparing the garden for the winter, getting all the other house stuff done, and my husband is out of town on a business trip. Soon, things will calm down again.

Now, look at the color challenge for the Dostamper Stars 204. It does spell Halloween all over it, but I decided to not go that route. Instead I went for an all occasion card using the Gift of Love stamp set. I love this set and used the Perfect Plum to stamp the outline of the flower. I sometimes struggle with which sentiment to use, and this card was not different. However, I tried the ribbon and liked it better, and of course the bow completed the looks. I add texture to the Perfect Plum layer using the Lovely Lace TIEF. I normally like to cut my layers 1/8" - 1/4" shorter then the other, but this time I cut the front panel shorter so the Perfect Plum could be seen better and the texture could then be felt.  A tame card with wild colors.

Thank you for your visit, your loyalty, your support, and mostly, your friendship. Be well

  1. I totally understand your time constraints. My children are all grown up and I still can't seem to find time to get everything done. Beautiful card.


Thank you for Shopping with Miriam.
