To meet both the color challenge of Baja (which I can never resist), Soft Suede and Crumb Cake and the sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers, I have this card using some stamps on the top of my baskets. We used these same ones in card class this week.
I'm not sure about this blue bow yet.
The woodgrain background is done in Versamark to keep it really light.
To tie in this pretty Making Memories ribbon a little more, I added a French knot using DMC embroidery floss. I doubt I'll ever embark on another crewel embroidery project but it is nice to know those skills won't go to waste even if I did have to give it a couple tries before I remembered how to do this. :-)
The Baja stamped image is stamped off to give it a very light background for the message.
Thanks for visiting today!
