Today's card was designed based on the Atlantic Sketch Challenge #140.
I live in the Sonoran Desert (Arizona) and have been wanting to use my cactus stamps for a while. I wanted to use elements that are reminders of the desert: the sun, a tiny Cactus Wren (state bird), a cactus in bloom and sun-bleached wood. The photo above was taken on my porch to show the San Pedro cactus in the background. I chose to use the cantaloupe colors rather than tan, because the desert often has a sandy pink look to it.
