OWH Sketch #58


My son moved back home temporarily so my craft room is in upheaval, halfway moved upstairs. I am having trouble functioning in the disorder! The measurements on this card (and the cutting) aren't exact and straight, but I remembered I've always wanted to try the open border line that I first saw on Jan Hunnicutt's cards! I just used a black pen. I think it enhances the focal point and adds a touch of elegance; I'll definitely do it again. I colored the tiny grape stamps with Prismacolor pencils; I realized the stamp is probably too small to try to color!
Thanks for stopping by! Take care.

Sherry, bless your heart. You've lost your crafty area, but your card is pretty. I like the open border. It really adds the oomph to the card!

I like the border too, and the dp is lovely.
