Hambo Geranium and a Clean And Simple skip at OWH S&S blog!


I absolutely love this week's new digi given to those who joined in the Hambo Hoedown progressive challenge last week. I think it's a beautiful drawing and I wanted the geranium to stand out on my card. Our challenge this week also is to include "scoring" in our creation. I created a scored double border around the geranium, and distressed the scoring with this little flower shaped sander I have. There's different kinds of writing on both DPs, which I love, and when someone gives you a beautiful flower like this, no extra words are necessary!
I really like how my card turned out, especially the sponging that creates kind of a light around the geranium. And I think this would be considered a "Clean And Simple" card, which is the theme of OWH's blog skip today. What do you think?
In addition to this fab Hambo digi, I used these materials:
Memento Dewdrop Ink in "London Fog"
Copic sketch markers
DP: Cosmo Cricket "Odds & Ends" mini deck
Memory Box "Minuet" 6x6 paper collection
Half pearls
Thanks for stopping by!

Sherry, your card is beautiful. I love the scored border and the distressed look that the sanding & sponging add to the card. Thanks for playing.

Very nice card Sherry! I like the sponging effect too. I'm going to have to give that a try.
