Kindness with Patterned Paper and Cactuses - Winnie & Walter

Hi, Friends.......

I am back again with another card I made for the Winnie & Walter Color Combo Challenge for July. Take a look at the fabulous inspiration photo and color palette that Heather H. chose for this month....YUM!!

Can you tell I have been having a good time with the Winnie & Walter - Kindness with Evelin T Designs stamp set......which is this month's rerun set for the W&W Rerun Challenge??? I absolutely fell in love with this set when I saw it featured for the Rerun Challenge. Then when I noticed that it included cactuses, I was hopelessly smitten. I rarely see a set that I HAVE to get right then...(no waiting around...right NOW!).....but this one of them. (It helped that I had a W&W GC....YAY!! Thank you, W&W!!!)

Sorry again for the poor photo quality.  I am still having to take pics with my phone and it's not going well!!  EEK!!
For this card, I selected some cactuses I had stamped onto my Brusho/Dylusions papers and fussy cut out. I paired them with some patterned papers in the aquas of the color palette. I'm not sure if the print of the background reminds me of suns or Nazca lines! lol.... Anyway, it seemed desert-y. :) Adding the extra background layer as a mat was an easy way to ground my cactuses without drawing in a shadow.
Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Kindness wth Evelin T Designs stamp set
Versafine Ink - Black Onyx
Dylusions Ink Spray
DCWV and K&Co. scraps from my stash
