Thinking of You card

Hello! I'm back with a card I made yesterday for my lovely Auntie, her best friend sadly passed away :-( I wanted to make a card to say I was thinking of her. I struggle to make cards when there's a reason like this so I've used a few challenges for inspiration. She likes greens and natural type themes so that gave me a starting point. Then I've used this weeks Card Concept challenge photo and also The Paper Players sketch. I stamped the image twice, once in the lighter green and then again with a darker one but wiping off the edges before stamping to give the centre some depth. I hope you like it, thanks for visiting.




Supplies;
Stamp - Hero Arts 'Small Solid Flower'
Sentiment - WPlus9 'Fresh Cut Florals'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Lucky Limeade'
Ink - Stampin' Up 'Lucky Limeade' & 'Always Artichoke'
Other - wood veneer heart & jute twine
