I used this week's Unscripted Sketch as the inspiration for my husband's birthday card. I think it turned out pretty good.
For the base of the card I used PTI Kraft cardstock and then used the new Distressed Dots and Turning a New Leaf designer papers for my 2 layers. Ripe Avocado cardstock was used with PTI's new Limitless Layers die to create the sunburst layer. The sentiment is from PTI Fillable Frames and the dragonfly is from Masculine Motifs. I added Rustic wood buttons tied with baker's twine as my embellishments. Except for my background text stamping - all products are from Papertrey Ink. The background text, however, is a new set from Waltzingmouse. Love it - it is called Text It! Amazing set with 5 fabulous fonts. The text is also long enough to go from end to end horizontally on a card without having to match up the ends. So easy peasy to get it lined up and on the cardstock.
I have been married to my best friend, James for over 20 years. I feel so entirely blessed to be his wife and the mother of his children. We have two wonderfully sweet boys. They are growing so fast and keep us on our toes. I love to scrapbook, stamp cards and gifts, cook and bake. I really like to pamper my guys. And I would love to some day live a sustainable life style on our own homestead. Cows, chickens, goats, OH MY. A garden with tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers and more. Oh, the dreams I have...
For now, I enjoy crafting my "art" out and reading aloud to all three guys. I so enjoy spending time with my family.
