The card I want to share with you today reminds me of Little House on the Prairie. It has that homespun look to it, probably due to the Fan Fair DSP I used in the background.
I designed this card to participate in two challenges. Pals Paper Arts Challenge #146, is a colour challenge using Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake - a very homespun combination in my mind.
Then, the Paper Players Challenge #119 is a lovely sketch, and the two just work so nicely together.
I used the Water Colour Winter stamp set for the main image, but chose to go with crumb cake instead of the red which was too dominant already. The colour was added with a little splash of Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details.
The horizontal panel was embossed with one of the Delicate Designs embossing folders and trimmed with 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Real Red. The Very Vanilla panel backing it was punched with the Scallop Trim Border punch. The vertical flag was scored with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and sponged with some Crumb Cake ink to bring out the ridges it formed.
I'm quite pleased with the design and hope that the special people that I want to thank with this card will be pleased as well! Did you ever read the Little House on the Prairie Series or watch the television show? Does this card make you think of homespun? Let me know what you think. I love to read your comments as they help me to get to know you better! I feel like I'm communicating with real people and not just nebulous ether waves! And if you like what you read, won't you join my site?
Excited to hear from all of you!
