My nephew has been teaching in Chicago for several years and recently made a life altering decision to join the Peace Corps. He flew to his assignment last week in Lusaka, Zambia, Africa. No phone, no computer, no iPod. Just a bike, a post office box (fingers crossed this card makes it) and a desire to make a difference. I'm so proud.
This week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO178) offered excellent "direction" on how to lay out my card!
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- My Paper Snips made it easy to clip out the arrows and pop them up on Stampin' Dimensionals.
- Offsetting the two large circles gives the card a modern finish.
- Make your brads line up at attention. Watch my 1 Minute to "WOW" Video for a quick demonstration.
- The Stampin' Up! Color Coach was my inspiration for determining the Basic Gray, More Mustard and Riding Hood Red combination.
