Thoughts of You

Hello, friends!!!

I have a dear friend in my neighborhood who is having a struggle and she loves flowers so I made this card for her.

Thoughts of You card:


I stamped a REALLY OLD (at least 10 years old) image from Stampin’ Up! coloring on it with marker using Forest Foliage and Eggplant Envy. I stamped this on vellum and then for a background I took a triangle makeup sponge, and using the square end I stamped Eggplant ink on white cardstock. I layered them together and punched two holes and tied some lovely white sheer ribbon – also retro SU! –  through and tied a bow!

I have written an upbeat, encouraging note inside and I am hoping it will brighten my friends day!!

I am hurrying to link this up to the following challenges:

Retro Rubber Challenge# 38 May Colors


I was inspired by the colors in the tulips!! And the stamp set I used is over 10 years old!!

House of CardsMay Challenge: Clear Papers


I used vellum as an overlay over my background!!

Thanks for looking and I hope you think of someone whose day you could brighten!!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!

    Taunya, I think the only retro SU item you used that I might have in my stash is the white ribbon, LOL…. So very glad that you played along with us this week! Our stamps might be old but they are still precious. Hope to see you play with us often!
