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. ;-)
