Here's the Sketch:
I flipped mine to vertical.
The cardstock is Bazzill Admiralty Blue, the sentiment, stamped in Memento Nautical Blue, is from MFT and the paper is BoBunny Anthem Collection.
Then, because a friend's grandson has been in the hospital (thirteen days on life support ) after being tragically shot in a drive-by shooting for telling some drunk, noisy partygoers that they were speeding back and forth too fast on a family street, I wanted to make a card for her. So, I used the same sketch.
It's not quite as intense as it looks on my computer screen (I was dealing with an unusually bright PNW sun shining in the window), but I did want a cheerier card. The cardstock is Stampin' Up's Early Espresso, the paper is probably either BoBunny or EP (I've lost the original pad), and the sticker is Penny Black.
This is one I made for my friend's grandson, who was -- yay! -- moved to a rehab hospital this week where he'll be spending several months because the bullet that's got to stay lodged in his spine shattered his pelvis. I don't know him personally, but he's a young man and I wanted him to know that there are people outside his family pulling for him.
Again, my colors are a little off. The stripes at the top are actually the same white as the banner stripe. I suspect my Candies, which I added because the stripe looked too bare by itself, fooled the flash. The cardstock and ink is Stampin' Up's Midnight Muse, the sentiment is from MFT, and the paper is one of my fave EP Dots and Stripes. I know a lot of people don't think polka dots are masculine, but I wanted a happy, encouraging card, and think the blue will work for either gender. Inside I stamped two sentiments -- one from MFT saying "I'm sorry you're having a rough time." And below that, from Lawn Fawn, "Wishing you a speedy recovery."
Thanks for visiting, and for those of you who entered my Labor Day weekend VCMP contest, I'll be announcing the winner of the stamp set here on the blog tomorrow.
