Vacation Inspiration

While my hubby and I were in Texas, we visited the Alamo.  I loved the Spanish/Mexican influence in the city of San Antonio and the Alamo itself.



I'm interested in the cultural aspects of the time period.  My husband, Steve was into the actual battle history.  I saw some beautiful blue pieces in the Alamo museum that inspired my card for the today.

Here's what it looks like:


  • The beautiful paper is from the Moroccan Designer Series Paper Pack.  I love the Dapper Denim and Marina Mist triangles! 

  •  The stamp set is Heartfelt Sympathy.  This set doesn't need much embellishing to go with it because it's very pretty on its own.  I stamped the saying on Very Vanilla paper with Dapper Denim ink.  I mounted the sentiment on a piece of Marina Mist.
  • For embellishments, I used Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon tied in a knot.  I also added the leaves cut with a thinlet from the Flourishing Thinlets Dies in Marina Mist?
If you need a quick sympathy or thinking of you card, this card is for you.  It took me ten minutes to put it together!

Happy stampin',
Robin
