I snuck away from my Bat Mitzvah planning long enough to make a quick card for two challenges. CFC72: Toot Your Own Horn, challenges us to make a card inspired by our own blog header. HELLO--why did I never notice how BORING my blog header is? Why didn't anyone tell me? So, instead, I decided to make a card inspired by my blog background, and to get working as soon as possible on making a more interesting blog header.
I used this week's Retro Sketches 31 to design my card.
I used a variety of distress inks to create a sunset background, and stamped a palm tree image from Waltzingmouse My Island. My blog background is inspired by the sunsets and palm trees all around where I live, and when I saw the My Island stamp set, I knew I needed to own it. So many of the images in the set are the things I see every day.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse My Island
Paper: PTI Kraft, White
