My Sheri Crafts Challenge #22: Thinking of You


Needing a card for my elderly aunt, I loved this challenge at My Sheri Crafts! To me "Thinking of You" is always a perfect sentiment, no matter what you decide to stamp or write inside your card. I had previously colored this JustRite watering can bouquet with Copics, so it was my starting point. After cutting/embossing two Spellbinders' Beaded Ovals, I left them in the dies and sponged softly with Sweet Blush ink. Those 2 layers were alternated with another darker oval below my main image, popping up the top two layers for interest. My sentiment threaded through a Spellbinders' Ribbon Tag with a side bow and rounded corners are the finishing touch. Hope it brings my Aunt a smile when it reaches her!
