Thinking of you from the garden.

On September 22, 2007, a very dear friend of ours passed away after a long illness. This card is for his wife, also a dear friend, on the anniversary of his passing. I hope it will bring her a tiny bit of comfort.

I wanted soft, soothing images on this card and this one fits the bill perfectly. It's From the Garden, a hostess gift from the Spring and Summer catalog. I love it's simplicity and elegance. I started with a Blush Blossom card base and stamped the image in Blush Blossom on Whisper White card stock after using the scallop punch on the bottom edge. I tied a bow with some blush colored sheer ribbon around the stamped layer, stamped the sentiment in Creamy Caramel, and added flat back pearls for balance.

Unlike most cards I make, I knew exactly what I was going to do before I sat down to make it. And it came together and turned out exactly like I pictured it would. I love it. Thanks for visiting!

Recipe: Stamps--From the Garden and Sincere Salutations (SU!); Paper--Whisper White and Blush Blossom (SU!); Ink--Blush Blossom and Creamy Caramel (SU!); Accessories--ribbon and flat back pearls (craft store).
