Thrift stores and Love & Sympathy for Monkey Challenge #99

Stamping is a nice way to end this Friday. I've been looking for some great pieces for my sister's vintage show in May, and found all kinds of fun stuff at area thrift stores. I found a record cabinet (those round flat things we used before CDs became the norm - hee hee) for only $12 and a couple of other items, including a little wagon, a white picket shelving unit that folds flat, another shelving unit where the three shelves come all the way out and are each a different color, two little picket fence Tchotchke holders, and a bunch of doilies.

Now to the stamping portion of this post! I love the colors of this Love and Sympathy Twitterpated card. I focused on Baja Breeze for the card, ribbon and buttons, and chose to keep the main image very simple so it wouldn't compete with the floral patterned paper behind it. I like the Ticket Corner Punch for a touch of sophistication to an otherwise simple card. I made this card for the A La Card Monkey Challenge #99: Flowers + Sketch.

I used the sketch below that I made in My Digital Studio to make my card.
