Good Luck

Do you ever send “Good Luck” cards? Sadly, I don’t send them as often as I should. However, this year I’ve decided to change that. I have several friends that will be heading off to the Westminster dog show in a few weeks, and I felt good luck wishes were in order for each and every one of them! I will definitely be whipping up a few more of these.  It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

The amazing Claire is hosting our monthly color challenge this month. She has selected a trio of patriotic colors for us.  With apologies to Claire, I did add a smidge of green for the stems and leaves. I was going to get all creative and stamp them in Pacific Point, but they just did not look right.  Claire, I am so sorry.   Sometimes the best laid plans often go awry!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Sometimes the right background makes a world of difference,  just like the gorgeous lattice die cut from the Organic Beauty die collection.  It forms the backdrop for this trio of flowers.  In fact, it’s a perfect backdrop for ANY floral image.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, the Sending Smiles bundle is also a winner. With its variety of sentiments, it is such a versatile set. It is becoming a work horse in my stable of floral stamps!

  1. Love this Ann – I had been eyeing that lattice diecut, now I NEED it lol!

  2. Westminster…. yep… that definitely requires a good luck card! I love the lattice work background, it adds so much wonderful texture. Fabulous use of the colors, Ann

  3. So Pretty and cheerful! Is that lattice die cut easy to work with? Do you put your paper on that stamp n stick stuff? Or do you use glue? Give Nueve a Hug! It’s been hot here, you too?

  4. Fabulous card, Ann! I love the lattice background behind the flowers (and that bundle is definitely going on my next SU! order!). The white background keeps this card crisp and clean.
