Balanced Rock


This gorgeous stamp is Creative Play Stamps' Balanced Rock. We were watching an old Indiana Jones movie the other night and they had this landmark in a scene. I told DH & the boys, "I have that stamp!" The actual Balanced Rock is in Arches National Park in Utah.

The circular embellishment on the left is actually a Basic Gray book clip. I deliberately did not glue it in, so it can easily be slipped out to fulfill its ultimate destiny!

The paper is all SU! including the wood patterned paper. I loved that paper so much when I bought it that I hoarded it. Now I rarely seem to find a need for it, but I thought it worked well for this card.

I have been enjoying challenges a lot lately, and this card is a sketch challenge by Lauren Meader. I've never done one of her challenges before, so I have no idea how often they happen, but I thought it was a great sketch!

This reminds me of a scene from Double BB's and my fave 'together' movie, Riders of the Purple Sage --"Roll the stone, Lassiter!" [push that big stone over, block the path, I love you!] I think it's a Louis Lamour story made into a movie with Ed Harris (yum) and Amy Madigan. Anyway, it's the reason I bought this stamp (how I do run on) ... love your card. Hey, I TOLD you I was tired today, babble babble!
