Thinking of You

I've been working with this color combo for a few days now and trying to use up the overwhelming collection of scraps I have. I used a piece of Kaiser black and white DP along with a piece of really red SU! dp. I also used basic black, really red, and PTI white cardstocks The sentiment is by Just-Rite and was colored with markers before stamping. The outer ring was stamped with Versamark on black cardstock and embossed with white ep. I used a scalloped border punch on the edges and mats, and added a few black Kaiser pearls in 2 different sizes. I topped it all off with a piece of red grosgrain ribbon tied in a knot. This is one of my favorite go-to sketches for a quick and simple card.
Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a fantastic weekend!!!
