Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #19

Happy Memorial Day to all of you. If there are any of you that are out there stamping today here is the sketch for today! We are on week 19 already. I really hope to make some more cards with this sketch through out the week but today the garden is calling my name -- really loud too, lol.



I kept my card kind of simple this time. I so love the look of the papers in the Le Jardin paper pack and wanted to use them for a thank you card to a friend that likes elegant but simple. So this just may work. you will probably have to enlarge to see the scoring on both sides of the brads. There is also some sponging around the focal image that does not really show up too well.





Stamps: Carte Postale

Paper: So Saffrron, Basic Grey, textured Bashful Blue, and Whisper White card stock along with the papers from the Le Jardin paper pack.

Ink: So Saffron, Bashful Blue and Going Grey

Other: Bashful Blue brads, half pearls, scor pal, nestabilities dies.


Now for today's player's or should I say player!
(it is a holiday after all)

Claudia at Stamping in Columbus GA
with an appropriate card for today!

Thanks Claudia for playing along. Now for the rest of you that are probably out enjoying your holiday weekend don't forget to leave a comment here when you do get the time to join in and stamp. I will post the link on one of my post so that everyone can see!

I'm stampin' today! :D My hubby is out with the guys and I can't think of anything else I would want to be doing today? Haha. I have an addiction. Anyway, I didn't get to play last week and the week before I completely forgot to post my card! :( I will just have to post it late! :D Thanks so much for the great sketch. I will post my card later!

I've been hoping that I'd get both the time to craft and the opportunity to upload a card to my blog. Find my take on this sketch:
