Have You Heard the News?

Today’s card drew inspiration from several challenges across the interwebs, and I’m pretty pleased with the result!  Colors thanks to Color Throwdown #225, Stamp choices to A Blog Named Hero #18, sketch to Studio Calico, and also submitting to Word Art Wednesday as Anything Goes!


January Cards 009

The color palette actually came together easily thanks to some cute MME papers that I punched circles out and had some cute brads that matched.  The wood grain background is an HA stamp, maybe 2009?  So I had fun getting some use out of it along with a newer release for the sentiment and ? marks inked in HA Cup O Joe and Soft Brown for the wood grain.  The sketch itself is thanks to SC, which is actually a scrapbook page layout but I wanted to really challenge myself and use it for a card!  Kind of quirky, but I love it!  I don’t have any arrow stamps – but duh!  I grabbed a ruler and made my own, yay!

As I was making this, I thought how FUN it would be to give someone that you’re announcing you’re pregnant.  I’M not, so don’t get any ideas people, I just thought it would be cute for that!! Surprised smile



Thanks for joining me today, have a happy Monday! Winking smile
