Walk in the Wild w/ HSSSC186

Good evening and thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm a little late on my post.  Normally I post in the morning but I didn't get my card finished until early this morning and well, you know how that story goes.....  I want to share with you my card for the fun sketch over Hand Stamped Sentiments.  You have time to play too.  You should head on over and check it out.

So I'm in Father's Day mode and I decided to play around with Walk in the Wild stamp set mixed with a little Truly Grateful, cause I just love the background stamp out of this set.  I stamped several together on my vanilla layer and sponged the sides in soft suede to give a good hardwood appearance.  I just love how sponging the edges of cardstock adds such a difference in the way a card looks when finished.  The DSP banner strips are from retro fresh and I added a burlap strip too.  Now the candy dots, are my favorite.  You wonna know why???  Of course you do!!!  Well you see we only sale candy dots in the 4 different color families of regal, bright, neutral and subtle.  Not in the in colors, but that's ok.  One of the reasons I love my new blendabilities, is because you can color on rhinestones, pearls and candy dots (white/vanilla) and you can make them what color you want and the color won't smear or wipe off.  So of course I colored two vanilla candy dots coastal cabana to match my DSP!!!  Cool ha!?  Yea, I thought so too!!

On the inside, I had a left over piece of the wood background, so I placed it on the side, and added two DSP banners.  It's done and now ready for that hand written message.

This is a really handsome card, I have pinned it to use for inspiration on my Father's Day cards! Love it! The background is nice and rustic, and the dots give it the little pop that makes it special. Thanks for playing at HSS! Erika
