Now back to business.
Today at Try Stampin on Tuesday we have another great sketch challenge for you.
I decided to make my Dad's new surroundings a Celebration of Life. With Lovely As a Tree I used the tall evergreen to represent my Dad. Trees take so long to grow and mature and at 87 years, he has definitely grown! Then rather than using the black around the entire piece to accent it I used two small strips. These strips represent my Brother and I. We are the ones that are here to look after him.
The sentiment was one from Cloud 9 Design called Simple Thoughts - Happy Birthday. Even though it is an overall birthday stamp set I though that the sentiment was perfect for my Dad.
I finished off the inside of the card with the pine tree again stamped just to the bottom off the card.
Dad you mean so much to us and we are all so glad you are happy with your new surroundings. See you soon...
Now it's time for you to show us what you can do with the sketch. Do you have a special person that you would like to celebrate? Need more inspiration? Hop on over to TSOT blog and check out the other great Designers.
