Dawn of Another Year

This is my card for SC194 on SCS. The hardest part of this card was following the sketch. I kept making one piece too short. First it was the bottom piece and then it was the side piece. I was so frustrated that I almost whifted it across the room. I thought I was being so smart, I cut the orange and then cuttlebug it. The problem is, I forgot how the space between had to be added on, so..... After 3 times stupid I finally got it right. I stamped the man and the trees in Distress ink Walnut stain and then used a post it to create the horizon. I punch a small circle out of the post it and colored it apricot appeal to create the morning sun. Lots of sponging and SU inks created the morning sky. On my gallery on SCS, I have listed all my colors. My name is RetiredHeather. Go for a visit and let me know what you think.

Guess the family will be expecting supper so....time to go create some sort of miracle on the table. Maybe they`ll surprise me and say...I`ll bring home supper Heather. Wow that would be fantastic. Here`s hoping.

Talk soon

How beautiful! I love how you did the backgound behind your image and then the other backgrounds supporting that!
