This very kewl SimonSaysStamp sketch was on my desk and I wanted a card for my oldest brother. SIXTY SIX this year. Let’s talk retirement! I was thinking patriotic, flags, etc. but once I made the sun, it just kind of flowed in a different direction. The piece of darker green is actually a pic of the Smokey Mountains. a tiny piece left of the DP I picked up there years ago. (my brother lives in TN and went to the Smokies for their honeymoon.)
It took all of 22 minutes to make this card. Now I am bummed b/c when I photo it it is not TRUE color. This is a bluish green stampin up color, one of there ones they come out with for a short time and then retire it. It just looks so cool all done up in for real life! The color changes to too blue when photographed. But hey, I like it, he’ll like it and we’ll all be happy and I got to use that very kewl sketch from SimonSaysStamp. hmmm after posting it the color don’t look so bad after all! (yes, I know I said “don’t) but the red isn’t this red. ha ha.
