Hello. I know it has been a while... you know life gets in the way sometimes of crafting. I wish crafting could be my life, but then who would take care of my family :D? I don't want anyone else to do it, so crafting gets put on the back burner some times.
I used the HOPE set from http://www.papersmoochesstamps.com
since that is the only one I own, (but I hope to rectify that this Christmas, as I have a couple of sets on my Christmas list. To create my background I inked up some distress watercolor card stock from Tim Holtz. I used the smooth side and swiped my Memento dye ink London Fog for the middle Tangelo and Grape Jelly for the ends. I then took another piece of card stock and inked both ribbons in a circular pattern to create a flower, first the orange with the solid image and then the purple with the open image. I then fussy cut it out. I took the scrap and inked it up and cut the circles out to create the center.
I hope it touches the receiver as it is intended. I made it with my heart, and I pray that it brightens their day. So for todays post I am linking my card to http://papersmoochessparks.blogspot.com
