Thinking of You

I've been making lots of "thinking of you" cards lately. I've found they can be sent for so many occasions--illness, sympathy, or just a general pick-me-up. I combined two challenges to make this one: Kristina Werner's color challenge and Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge to use ribbon tabs.

Stamps: Sunny Thinking (Hero Arts)
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Riding Hood Red, Regal Rose
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Cuttlebug Argyle, flower (Prima), button (SU), ribbon (Michaels), dimensionals

I like the texture you added to the card. The black also adds a fun pop. Great job with the color combo.

It's a good life!
