Tigers with a side of Carte Postale

We went to the Tigers game last night. What an exciting game! We saw two grand slam home runs...wish I could say they were both hit by Tigers, but that wasn't the case. The first one was from the Tigers and it brought them from behind to ahead by one point...that was really exciting! But, the second grand slam of the game was hit by Oakland and put the Tigers behind...again...and they never ended up recovering after that. The final score was 10-16 - Oakland. It was still a lot of fun, but I feel whipped throat is hoarse from all the screaming. It was a long game, but lots of action, so it was fun even tho they lost. Plus, in all the games I've ever been to, I had never seen anyone hit a grand slam - now I can say I saw two!

My Mom & my Step dad are celebrating their 1st wedding anniversary today, so I made them this card. I wanted it to be very elegant looking, and I think I achieved that goal with this card. I used the new Basic Gray card stock and ink from Stampin' Up! (not to be confused with the company called Basic Grey who makes such gorgeous patterned papers) Anyways...I just love this new color! I'm sure I'll be using it lots!

I wish my scan would have shown the colors a little truer, but I had to prop the lid open a bit to allow for the popped up medallion. This one really does look so much better in person. The medallion consists of many layers popped up and embossed with pewter embossing powder and that doesn't show up well. The other card stock used is Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum, but they look so much lighter & brighter in this scan...oh well. At least you can see how nicely the Carte Postale & Baroque Motifs sets work together.

Have a great day!

lynn: The two sets do work well together: I guess I'll have to try a card with them. Love the colors you pick out for the card. Great card.
