Thinking of You

One of my lovely ladies is having a bit of a rough trot in life at the moment so I wanted to make her a card to say my thoughts are with her. I got a germ of an idea and this is what it turned into:

I thoroughly enjoyed the watercolouring and kept the rest of the design very simple so the flowers would take centre stage.

Materials used:

  • stamps - Curly Cute, Fabulous Florets
  • card - crumb cake, calypso coral, watercolour paper, very vanilla
  • inks - calypso coral, tangerine tango, cajun craze, wisteria wonder, elegant eggplant, lucky limeade, black StazOn, crumb cake, soft suede
  • other - pearls, scallop trim border punch

I stamped a flower on the inside and on the envelope as well.

As the SUO challenge this week is, co-incidentally, a Thinking of You card, I'm entering it into that.

Thanks for calling in.
