For You

Every February my son's school has a silent auction in order to raise money for the school. Last year I made up a basket of hand stamped cards and items to be raffled off. This year I was asked to do the same. I have a ton of scraps of Designer Series paper that have retired, so I have made it a mission to put them to use. This is one of my favorite patterns from the Wintergreen designer series paper that retired at the end of December. I paired it up with Soft Sky, Always Artichoke and Certainly Celery cardstock. I kept the layout fairly simple so that I can mass produce a few of each design.

I really like how this turned out. I like the clean lines and the way the white flower just pops off of the page.

Have a great Saturday! We have a few errands to run and a birthday party to go to, so I'll be in and out today. I hopefully will get some stamping done along the way.


Stamps: One of a Kind
Paper: Soft Sky, Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Wintergreen dsp, Whisper White
Ink: Always Artichoke, Soft Sky
Accessories: Soft Sky double stitched ribbon, vintage brad, 1/4" and 3/4" circle punches, 1/16" hole punch
