A Summer Cabin Sketch

I made this card for Heather's Sketch Challenge. Look at this fun sketch!

And this is the card I created using the H&M Stamp set Dad's Outdoors. I just love this little cottage and lantern. It reminds me of my growing up summers camping in Maine and New Hampshire - only we were in a tent!

I cut and embossed the vanilla panel with my square nestability and framed it with a Really Rust scalloped square (you almost can't see it against the DP I used!) I thought this ribbon was perfect to go with the colors I used on the images.I took the 'Happy Father's Day' sentiment from the set and just cut the words 'Happy' and 'Day' to use on this card. I'm thinking it could be a birthday card or just a 'hello - it's summer' card?!! Any day in a cottage is a Happy Day - right!?!

Paper: Really Rust, Very Vanilla, DP - Apple Cider - SU

Ink - Onyx Black Versafine

Supplies: striped grosgrain ribbon - Michaels, foam dimensionals, Prismacolor markers: Limepeel, green tea, olive green, jasmine, terra cotta, ash gray, taupe, putty
