Par Avion...


With hubby away on a business trip and moi down with a cold, I wanted to get inky and make a card since I was going to have trouble sleeping anyway. I loved the challenge colors in this week's Color Throwdown, and I told myself I needed to use stamps I have never used before. This card uses no fewer than eleven images from three different sets! I made this card for my mom-in-law, who has been such a good friend to talk to with all the chaos lately, and it's so much fun to make a "just because" card. By the way, that big bow was created with some recycled Christmas ribbon (from my mom-in-law!)

Love this, Regina---a nice change of pace. I think maybe you'll be starting a new trend with wide organdy again.....I certainly have enough of it! Thanks for playing with the CTD this week!

A very nice card for using any time. I like the focal point. Lots of interesting detail on it. Hope you feel better soon.
