Happy Veteran’s Day to all of our Veterans.  I am so thankful for each and every one of you!

A friend’s birthday was yesterday and she loves the more rustic look.  I don’t do that very well.  I lean more towards brights.  But in looking through the designer series paper, which is where I get a lot of color ideas, I found what I thought would work.  It is the Pressed Petals DSP.  I have used the solid “burlap or linen” sheet of paper previously.  I hope she and you like this one.


Stampin' Up!, Pressed Petals, Beautiful Bouquet, Jckie Beers


I paired the flowers with the burlap / linen background with Crumb Cake and Merry Merlot.  I added Rococo Rose as a lighter pop of color.   I also added the solid piece of the burlap / linen sheet behind the sentiment.  The flower and sentiment are from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  I had not utilized that set in some time and am thrilled with how well it worked here.

Do you recognize this layout?  It is a landscape version of the deer card I did last week for the sketch challenge.

Here is the layout card I mentioned:


And here is the card I did previously using the linen look DSP:
