HAPPY WEEKEND PEEPS!
So sorry I've been neglecting you this week, but my back has been killin' me and totally zapped the creative mojo right out of me. I'm not exactly sure what I did, but it might have something to do with helping MW carry a cabinet up from downstairs. Duh! I wanted it in my stamp room as an "island" for my paper cutter and extra storage and it was my idea. Not a smart idea for me to help carry it, but it really is working great now. :)
Thankfully, my back is better today and I've been stamping all afternoon and enjoying every minute! I've already made three cards for my Etsy Shop and hope to get a few more done to post tomorrow. This card was created especially for the COLOR THROWDOWN Challenge #80. When I first saw the colors, I was a bit intimidated, but then I saw all the fabulous cards by the Color Throwdown Team and thought "I Can Handle This"! :)
For my card, I've used bravo burgundy for the base, layered on a light green vintage K & Company designer paper, and then used really rust to back the image. The flower is a two step stamp from Stampin' Up set ~ Heartfelt Thanks.
Can you tell I'm "into" the vintage distressed look lately? I'm loving it and hope you do too! All the edges are zig zag stitched and sponged and I've embellished with some brass brads and clip. The ribbon is bravo burgandy grosgrain. I tried putting a sentiment on this and decided against it. Also, I've finished off the inside to coordinate with the front...
Happy Stamping & Smiles 2 U! Are you thinking SPRING??? I sure am! :)

Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
