Back to High School

Another Impression Obsession challenge today! This time the theme was high school colors. For me, that meant breaking out the old red, white, and blue. Go Cavaliers! Of course, I then went to college where I was..... a Cavalier. I have no imagination.

Although I was working with red, white, and blue, I decided I didn't want to make a patriotic card. Instead, I chose a nautical theme. I made the plaid background by stamping the Cover a Card thick and thin stripes (CC008) in two different directions using Blue Iris and Warm Red Colorbox Chalk ink. The stamps are all from a Leigh Hannan clear set called Sunshiny Day (CL184).

Want to see the other designers' walk down memory lane? Check out what Deborah, Dina, Jeanne, Jenny, and Kathy created.
