Today, I was inspired by the great sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I am only hoping that it it is "clean" enough as I could not resist adding the flower and a couple of faux photo corners. It is simple and that's something for me :)
As regular readers know, I get a total kick out of the elderly couple from RRD's Just Sayin' collection. There is just something about their expression that makes me smile and gives me that warm-fuzzy-ahhhh feeling. That...and her hair always cracks me up.
All the designer paper in this card is from my scrap basket, which mercifully is getting emptier as time goes on. I have not cut a new piece of designer paper in months and yet I still have quite the stash left.
I am getting better about using up my scrap cardstock too but that just seems harder for me. I grabbed this delicious deep red card from my stack of "half sheets" that I keep front and center on my desk. I stamped it with coordinating ink using two different simple RRD backgrounds - Just Sayin's Netted background and Getting Grizzly's Honeycomb - just to add a little visual interest. I also stamped the couple using the same coordinating ink.
Here's the result:
This was the original sketch:
How did I do?
I am also entering this card in the following fabulous challenges:
Card Makin Mamas - Busting out the Rubber
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes
Hope you have had a day with lots of loving looks and inside jokes just like the couple on my card!
