Try Stamping On Tuesday

Time for a sketch.  :)  I've been busy working behind the scenes on cards for upcoming design team projects, and wanted to spend some time today making a card just for my blog readers.  :)  When I saw the sketch posted this morning on Try Stampin' On Tuesday I was instantly inspired to go create.

It's very fitting for all the rain we've been having here.   The nearby river has been at or near flood stage for a week now, but today the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and our neighbor even has his lawnmower going.   Ahhh...the sounds of Spring.

This card also gave me a chance to pull out some neglected new goodies.  Can you believe I've had this stamp set and builder brads for at least 2 months and never used them?  

Try Stampin' On Tuesday #158

The twist for this week's challenge is to use stripes and squares.  This sketch will be going in my file for future use.  You can do so much with it and it's a great sketch for showcasing your patterned paper.

This card is also being linked up with Cardz 4 Guyz.  Their challenge this week is typography, words or a name.  When I made this card I planned to put it in my OWH box and I try to make most of my OWH cards "guy friendly" so they can be sent either to or from a guy.  ;)

Great job Heather. Love the fading on the brads and just a hint of striping in the DSP. Thanks for sharing with us this week at TSOT. PS: Little jealous of your spring coming when we are sitting up here with yet more snow each day! Hope it stops before say...next winter!
