This week we had a great sketch to work with from the designers at Mojo Monday. Here’s the sketch…
and here’s my take on it….
My father-in-law is very ill and currently in the ICU. I thought he needed something to cheer him up, and since my brand new “So Sorry” stamp set was just waiting to be used, it was a match made in heaven! I love the grey herringbone pattern in the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper # 126906. Nothing halloween-y about this pattern; it’s all masculine. Just perfect for the base for a get-well card for a man. I love the Basic Gray and Summer Starfruit color combination so it’s no surprise that this was the only color combination I even considered. The little piece of ribbon is tied only in a knot, no bow here! The flag in a striped pattern of Summer Starfruit sets off the grey, adding some cheerfulness without being girly.
I think the finished product is a winner! Nice and cheery but still masculine. And Dad seemed to cheer up a bit when I gave it to him so, mission accomplished.
