Patriotic Balloons...
Retro Rubber Challenge #18 part two...

Let Your Light Shine...

Happy Monday!  Today I am showing off a fun card that I did to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  The challenge showed two squares, which I thought would be perfect to do an image and a sentiment. fms 1 (546x640)

So I grabbed my new PTI Guiding Lights set and went to work.  I love lighthouses!  There is just something about the grandeur and the history of these buildings!  I used the PTI fresh linen snow cardstock as the card front.  This CS has a very light linen texture and when you stamp on it, you get some white spaces in the ink that make the image look a little distressed. fms 2 (640x461)

I stamped the lighthouse in SU! real red and memento black ink.  I added the sentiment in black and then used my SSS curved edge die instead of a piece of twine or ribbon.  I popped the card front on another piece of the linen cardstock and that was it.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to swing in tomorrow!

Supplies:  CS:  PTI fresh linen snow.  Stamps:  PTI guiding lights.  Inks:  SU! real red and memento black.  Dies:  Simon Says Stamp curved edge die.

I love this card! What a great way to use the sketch! Perfect nautical colors, just the right red and just the right blue. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!


Saw this on The freshly made sketches blog! Love the simplicity, but really love that sentiment! I don't know what PTI is? What set is the sentiment from?
