FOSTV-Labor Day challenge
This week the challenge at Friends of Speedy TV is to make a Labor Day card. This would include things you do on Labor Day, your holiday traditions, or you can make something patriotic. What's better than sitting under a palm tree at the beach to end your summer. Gosh, I hate to see summer go...it's my favorite time of year. Yes, I like my weather Hot!
I paper pieced my card and palm tree and the blue is made by inking my acrylic block and stamping. I think it makes a cool, beach background.
For my card, I used Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co. sets called Flamingos on Vacation (palm tree) and Adirondack Summer Mini Stamp Set (chair and sentiment).
We hope you'll join our challenge this week and maybe you will be the winner of this fun stamp set called Fabulous Dogs.
