For this card, I used another wonderful Impression Obsession stamp designed by Gary Robertson. His stamps lend themselves so beautifully to embellishing with Flower Soft! I decided to use a little humour too, with the "his 'n' hers" out houses. The sentiment stamp is from Quietfire Design.

What a lovely card! I read the sentiment and thought....aw, how sweet. Then I realized I was looking at out-houses and laughed out loud! But the card is still beautiful, and the 'twist' makes it great!

Robyn said...

The blue flower soft gives an nice touch to these cabins...

Ozstuff said...

I am smiling widely! This is beautiful and it is also funny. The idea of his and hers outhouses could take on!! I wouldn't have thought of that verse to go with the images either but it actually works very well.

indybev said...

Oh dear - I'm not going to open the doors. I agree with everyone that the quote and the art present a delightfully funny oxymoron! Very clever.

Vicki said...

Fantastic card! I love the his & hers outhouses. Growing up we had an outhouse in the back yard. Ours was a 4 seater, and the "holes" were in graduated sizes, his the largest and baby's the smallest.
(We had indoor plumbing too!)

Great card and sentiment and use of the flower soft. TFS

Your card layout is very nice with the script on the side with the bow beneath it. I like the His and Hers script in the stamp also. The touch of flower soft here and there is nice also. Thank you for sharing.
