Happy Sunday afternoon!
This is what I did as my DH watched the race and took a nap!
I think I was definitely having more fun than he was!

I wanted to use the colors for the current
Coral ~ Tan ~ Brown

and the sketch is

I made this card with one of my new stamp sets called Ginger "Pictures" Indie Chic (MME),
which came in my August Simon Says Card kit
I stamped the chevrons in 3 rows with Crumb Cake, Soft Suede  (SU) and Coral (MS) inks.
Then I stamped the decorative border in Soft Suede directly to the card base.
I trimmed the chevron panel and attached it to the card base with foam tape.

The tag was cut with my Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge at 3 1/2".
I drew dashes all around the tag with a white gel pen. The sentiment is from a different stamp set called Absolutely Delightful (Simon Says).
I added pretty coral ribbon and twine to the tag. The paper flower is an Antique Paperie Flower sticker.

Thanks for stopping by!
Your sweet comments have been greatly appreciated!!

Hello Mackie,

I've just discovered your blog today via the Retro Sketch and I'm so glad I did. I love your style.

This is a beautiful card and it uses some of my favourite colours. I think your inspiration is going to set me to card making this evening!

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful talent.
