I hope you are as excited for the Labor Day weekend as I am! It's too hot in Arizona to do much outside. Okay, anything outside. So, I'm looking forward to a peaceful, relaxing weekend. It's been a busy month! My plan is to clean and do household things on Friday and Saturday so I can spend time with friends and stamp on Sunday and Monday. I hope you, too, have a safe and happy weekend!
My card today for the Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge features the "Hello, Doily" background stamp. Because I used shades of purple, it also fits the monochromatic challenge on the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog. When I first saw it, I decided I didn't need it because it was similar to the Medallion background stamp. Then, I saw card after card made with it. Every time I saw it, that stamp would remind me of the doilies my Mom, Grandma, and Great Grandma had made. It instantly takes me back to their homes as a little kid watching them crochet. With my Grandma's birthday coming up in a couple of weeks, I knew I wanted to make a special card for her with it. I hope she likes it!
I used the following Stampin' Up products to make this card:
Hello, Doily Background Stamp and Petite Pairs Stamp Sets
Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink
Confetti White, Wisteria Wonder, and Elegant Eggplant Card Stock
3/8" Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon
Large Oval and Scallop Oval Punches
