Guest Star Stamper for Color Throwdown #280

I am delighted to be a Guest Star Stamper this week, for Color Throwdown Challenge #280.  Here is the inspiration/colors photo:


And here is my creation:


The concept for this card came when a young neighbor friend of ours was hit by a car last Thursday night.  Fortunately he suffered only a broken leg and a few broken ribs, with no head or internal injuries.  All of us – in our close-knit neighborhood – are very grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse!

I’m afraid I’ve been in a rather somber mood since the event, and it had me thinking about a masculine ‘get well’ card that we could send to him.  After I began to create, though, this card morphed into more of a masculine sympathy card instead.  So I suppose I’ll have to start over on the get well card.


Thanks for stopping by today. ;-)

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Spring Tulips (Sweet & Sassy Stamps)
Paper/Cardstock:  Classic Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Rustic White Cardstocks; Enchanted Evening and Ripe Avocado Patterned Papers (PTI); Soft Sky Cardstock (SU!)
Inks:  Dark Chocolate (PTI); Tea Dye Distress Ink (Ranger)
Embellishments:  Rustic Cream Button Twine (PTI)
Tools: Linen/Canvas Impression Plate (PTI)
