Wednesday Stamp Club- Week 6!!

It is time for this week's Wednesday Stamp Club challenge from My Favorite Things, and as I am sure most of you know by now, we have gone to an ALL sketch format!! I LOVE it!! Unfortunately, my heart just isn't in stamping right now. I won't go into the details, but I made this card for an extremely special person. One of our favorite things to do was to go outside on clear nights and look at the stars. When I look at the stars, from now on, I will always think of him.

Since this card is for him, I had to go masculine...which I hate to do. I used Basic Grey, and Brocade Blue from Stamping Up, and matching DP. My ribbon is from SU as well, and my brads are from Michael's. I used the Polka Dot Greetings Die-namic, and a sentiment from the Great Outdoors set for my main panel.

On the inside, I used a sentiment from the More Essential Sentiments set. As much as I wish things were different, I do wish him all the happiness in the world.

Sorry for the sappy post, just having a bad night....this too shall pass, right?
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day. For a list of all the designer's participating in today's challenge, check out Kim's blog. You can get all the details for the challenge there, or in the MFT Member forum on SCS.
