Background Stamps

I drew up this sketch and then tried to execute it... I am not very good at translating sketches to cards. I wanted to use three bows across a circle. Unfortunately... I didn't have enough ribbon in the color and size I wanted to get bows. So I ended up with knots...

and the card was modified from the sketch because the visual effect was not as pretty as the sketch. :)

  • Hero Arts - Wavy Leaf Pattern
  • Hero Arts - Raindrop
  • Hero Arts - Sandra's Letter Background
  • EK Success Border Punch

  • Versamark Watermark Ink
  • Light Purple Embossing Powder
  • StazOn - Vibrant Violet
  • Kaiser's - Gems
  • American Craft - Ribbon
  • Prima Flowers

I have been so busy lately that my cardmaking has reflected it. My son has just graduated from 8th grade. My mom is sick and we have been working on getting her medication correct. We have a new puppy and then there is always work. So this has been a little bit why you have seen so little of my cards lately.

Have a great day!
