Oleander again



today I hopped over to one of my favourite blogs, A thousand sheets of paper. I love how Amy uses all these different colourful papers without getting her cards messed up.
When I “went home” to my own stash I had her cards in my mind and tried to come up with a new card.
I ended up with finding a huge sheet of used wrapping paper (the pink and purple one), a dp I won in a challenge and Oleander, the stamp I won from one of Amy’s candys some years ago.
Don’t mention the colouring: the image itself is very old, some of my first attemps to this stamp. As I’m not a big fan of pink I kept it in my stash.

For putting the card together I used a sketch from a challenge that was new to me – but seemed to be made for me: Cards in Envy. The idea is to make cards you can mail in normal envelopes with standard postage. As I make cards especially for my mother and grandmother who both want to mail their cards, this challenge is perfect.

This time they have a sketch. I’m not sure if I like it because of the litte corner that’s missing. Perhaps I’ll try this sketch again?
Hmm, let’s see if I have time.

But first: my newest card.
