Orian and Whisky -- High Hopes Stamps

Meet Orian and Whisky, they are part of the New release over at High Hopes Stamps!
This stamp reminds me of Happy Times and worry free days.  I tried to create a masculine card which we all know is not as easy as the girly designs that we usually default too.
Kept it simple with lots of muted tones and some Kraft paper too.
Using Gems, buttons, paper piercing, or sewing helps guide your eye around a design for good flow.
I can imagine sending this card with some homemade cookies to an old friend to say hello :)
I attended Scrapfest last weekend with my friend Linda.  Lots of fun walking around checking things out.  I was trying to crouch down since I am taller than her and ended up with a funny pose :)
Pop by the High Hopes Blog and play along in this months challenge. There is a free digi offered if your short on stamps.
A huge thank you for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the week!
