Rainbow Row

I really do love Beaufort, but Charleston, South Carolina is my favorite city. While at Carolina Stamper, an amazing store, I was thrilled to find many South Carolina stamp images. There was the ubiquitous palmetto, our state tree in many forms. Lighthouses, our state flag and St. Michaels steeple. Then I saw it. Rainbow Row. I have a beautiful painting of it hanging in my studio that my Mom left me. It was the last one left on the shelf, so I quickly snatched it up, determined to give it a loving new home:) This is the first card I made with it. I used Stampin' up cardstock, and patterned paper. The brass charm is from Fancifuls and the image was colored with Prismacolor pencils.

Does anyone remember reading a blog tutorial on how to make an envelope? It was in the last month, and I can't find it. Great directions, much easier than others I've seen. I even commented to her on what a great tutorial it was, but for the life of me, I can't remember who it was. I know what you're thinking, but old age doesn't make me forgetful; having way too many stupid things to remember does! lol
