Three Challenges in One



A quick post. Well it has taken me two days. I made this card while my DH was fishing last night. I don't like to fish at night because of the bugs and bats. It is for his uncle who is in the hospital. It works for three challenges.
Pile it on: No Pattern Paper
Stamp TV color challenge 25: brown, cream and red
Unscripted Sketches 18: the sketch

The stamps I used were all from Stamp TV sets. The flower was from a set called A Year of Flowers by Melanie Muenchinger. The inside sentiment is from Say it with Flowers also by Melanie. The background stamp was from the new Showtime Kit called Sign of Autumn by Gina K. The “Thinking of You” sentiment was from a set by Nina Brackett called Elegant Post. The ribbon was from the Showtime Kit Signs of Autumn. I stamped the background with Memento Desert Sand ink. The sentiments and sunflower were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I colored the image with Copic markers R 35, R29, RV 29 and E 29. I used BG Cool Shadow to outline the flower. A red sunflower seems like a stretch but I know I have seen some in seed catalogs.
I only brought one page of craft supplies. It is kinda fun making a card in the little cabin up here in the North woods. There were a few supplies I wish I brought but I had to be more creative with less. Let me know what you think. Thanks for stoping.

Beautiful card Linda, I love the simplicity of it.

I don't blame you for not fishing at night...though being out on the water at night is fun w/o bugs!
