I had the base of the card for the Operation Write Home Sketch #235 done on Monday, but finally did the sentiment today. I actually have a new pumpkin stamp that I thought would look really nice, but decided to go with the “Thinking of You” sentiment instead. Originally I had the sentiment stamped on white, but decided to try heat embossing on the darker background, something I’m not real good at yet. I also changed the gold embellishments to the silver to match the embossing.
The patterned background papers are from Hot Off the Press, Rich and Spicy Collection and I LOVE them! The solid cardstocks are from the Jim Holtz, Nostalgic Collection. There are so many great colors for fall in the pack!
I’m excited because today I was contacted by a local 4-H group to do basket weaving demos and vendor at an upcoming history event, so I’m sure the next several weeks are going to fly as I prepare.
