For this challenge, hosted by Michele, we are supposed to use a set that we have neglected. Don't we all have those? I bought Men of Life right when it came out, because I just loved everything about it. Unfortunately, it has sat, so forlorn, on the shelf--and I really don't know why. It's a great set. For this card, I used one of the stems from Green Thumb to make the mast. The one included in the set is too little for some reason. I also matted the image on vellum, because I didn't want to introduce too much brown.
Here is another set which I actually love, but I haven't used for a long time--Piece of Cake. The card is monochromatic, just for you, Michele :). I didn't include any sentiment on the front, but this could be used for a birthday or wedding card. I need to remember to leave sentiments off the fronts more often. I stamped the background in Versamark, then I went back over the big flowers with my Essential Glue Pad and some superfine-love-it-and-hate-it-at-the-same-time-glitter. The berry flowers on the cake are glitterfied with my red Stardust pen again, and the centers have stickles. Click to enlarge for fabulous glitter effect.
