Childhood Portrait

I was really excited this past week when I was able to attend the Scrapbooking Expo.  I had never been to one before and wow, oh, wow!  There were so many goodies to explore!

I was able to go to Tina Sutton's Close to My Heart booth and see a lot of the stamp sets in the catalogs that I have never seen in person.  Luckily enough, I saw the stamp set "Childhood Portrait" that I have been wanting to purchase for a while.  It's such an elegant, romantic, and whimsical stamp set.  I also picked up Jeanette Lynton's "Wishes" card layout book.  It has a lot of great ideas that I hope will help me create more cards for Operation Write Home.

Speaking of which, I created this card with my new stamp set.  I used cardstock from Autumn Harvest for my design.  No patterned papers on this card!  The stamp color is in Cocoa.  It's such a rich color that looks great with this color scheme!

Also, welcome to my new followers!  I hope you like what you see and I can't wait to look at your creations! :)
