Sweet Thoughts

I made this card today for a very special person in my life that received some very disappointing news today.  She has been having a rough time lately and I wanted to let her know I am thinking about her and that things will get better.  I hope this card will brighten her day and her outlook.

I am also using this card for Mojo Monday 236.  Above is the sketch.  The sketch seems very simple but I really like the layout.  It let me showcase the beautiful 6x6 paper -'Sugar Chic'- by Heidi Swapp.  There were so many cute papers in this collection that I had a hard time choosing.

From Verve Stamps I used the Rounded Scallop frame die and put it around this sweet sentiment from the 'Words of Wisdom' set.  All of the panels were stitched together and I added a sparkly pink ribbon from Caramelos Shop at Etsy.com  The raised flowers were cut from some of the same paper collection.  Some liquid pearls and two pink crystal candy dots complete the front of the card.

I kept the inside pretty plain because I am going to write something special inside.  I used the same paper collection and scalloped one piece.  Again, stitched them all together and the inside was finished.  I will be putting this in the mail soon in hopes that it brings a smile to a very important person.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
