What's Up Wednesday - Hope in Colorado!

Hi everyone!  Tara C. here with a What's Up Wednesday post.  The big news around here has been the Black Forest Fire in Colorado.  This has hit super close to home for us.  We are 12 miles from the fire and about 4-5 miles from the closest evacuation area.  Lots of friends have been evacuated and sadly, many have lost their homes and everything they own. On a more happy note, the fire is almost completely out today!

This would be a perfect little card to go along with a care basket for the evacuees, filled with things they may have been too rushed to grab when they left home.  I knew this sentiment would be perfect  because the burn area looks like total devastation and when you lose your home you feel as if everything is gone. The bright colors and cheery sun will bring some light into someone's life.

For this sweet little collage I used a few different Paper Wings Productions stamp sets.  The Backgrounds set was used on the background, the large cloud and the sentiment banner.  The Double Dot Border set was used on the small clouds and the sun and sentiment are from the Earth and Sky set. I marked black "stitches" around the clouds and added some fun red rickrack and a few shiny white sequins.

The inside shows more of the background stamp, another sun and more happy clouds!

Thanks for visiting us today!  We would love to see what you create with Paper wings Productions stamps.  Show us on our Pinterest page, our Facebook page or our Flickr gallery.  You can also leave a comment with a link to your project.
