There is a mandatory evacuation in the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I am praying that people evacuate and that lives are spared and damage is minimal.
My family reunion is tomorrow. We are having a picnic at one of our local parks. So I will be getting ready for that after I complete this post.
The card I made is for several challenges:
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps hosts an inspiration challenge on splitcoaststampers on Tuesday. This was our inspiration photo this week.
My jumping off point was the yellow, black & gray. I also used yellow dotted designer paper and stamped my image on that. The image is from the Sweet 'n Sassy set "wildflowers".
My sentiment is stamped on a lacy circle spellbinders die.
My layout is this weeks sweet stop sketch #122. This week there was a twist to the sketch. We are to add some fibers. I layered charcoal bakers twine on top of my satin ribbon. I also made a bow from the twine with a button center.
Also, on the Stampin Sisters in Christ blog the challenge was to try something new. I have never stamped on designer paper before. I like the look of it.
