Thoughts & Prayers

This is a sweet little get well card I made with a simple color scheme.  I used the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set as the feature.  Enjoy!

For a small 4X4 card with limited colors, it packs a lot of detail!  I especially like the contrast of the white in the centers of the flowers.  I used the White Gel Pen #105021 to accomplish that very detail!  I like how it "pops" against the muted color of the card.  I used a tiny bit of Pretty In Pink 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon to peek out from behind the card front layer.  The tiny pink flowers are made by using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack flower punch.  I sponged those too!!  The centers of those flowers are mini button brads from the Vintage Trinkets.  I absolutely cannot live without that little container of hardware!!  It is item #118764 and you get 48 trinkets for only $5.95!!  That is where the safety pin for the tag embellishment came from too. 

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Thoughts & Prayers, Wonderfully Worn
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Pretty In Pink
Accessories:  Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Vintage Trinkets, Medium Jewel Tag Punch, uni-ball Signo Gel Pen, Linen Thread, Modern Label Punch

This is such a pretty color combination. I love how you "treated" the Crumb Cake cardstock. Gorgeous.
