Thoughts of You

Hello there!  I thought I would pop in and share a card that I just made, using the latest challenge from Runway Inspired #18.  I haven't played in a challenge in forever, and I have missed it!  I have to admit, I feel a bit rusty lately, hence the need for a challenge.  A dear friend of mine just lost her stepfather, and I wanted to send her a card to let her know I was thinking of her.  With that in mind, I reached for a set I hadn't inked up yet, Paper Smooches Reflections set.  Here is what I made.

To start, I stamped and stamped off the leaves in Fresh Ink's Mojito, adding the flowers in Amuse Studio's Blueberry, which mimic the models flowery blouse.  I then added orange rhinestones, as I was inspired by her fun purse, and lastly, added some striped paper because of her pants and some orange Divine Twine.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Tomorrow, I will be back with the latest Ribbon Carousel Challenge, so stop back!

  4. Lindsay! How good to see you playing in challenges again! This is gorgeous - I love shade of the blue flowers against that green - it really hits a happy spot! (This set is on my wish list ... you aren't helping my resolve not to push the submit button :0)!
