Thinking of You


Hello everyone!  Happy Tuesday to you.  I cannot believe it is the last week of September already.  Where does the time go?  Today I have a card that uses a functional stamp set in a softer way.  The stamp set, 'Highly Confidential' from Raisin Boat is a set that could easily be used in an office setting.  I wanted to use those stamps to create a softer, more feminine card and I think this card succeeds.

I gave this card a vintage feel by inking all of the edges with distress ink and then used soft shades of brown and blue for that feminine feel.  I love the versatility of this set and think they made a beautiful background.  Of course, the pearls and flowers help to make it more delicate and I also inked up the twill ribbon with blue Memento ink for a gentle touch of color.

A close up of one of the charming accessories in the set made much more delightful by holding up a sweet sentiment!
