Thinking of You


I made this card for my SIL to let her know I'm thinking of her as the one-year anniversary of her husband's passing approaches. I sponged cardstock with scarlet, orange and yellow inks, and then added a SB die-cut border with an Elizabeth Crafts sentiment die cut. Before die-cutting the sentiment, I sponged the cardstock with yellow ink to tie in all the colors. The birds were done with Sweet 'n Sassy stamps and I think that's all this card needed.

I'm sharing this over at the Tuesday Throwdown #289 which is to "use your die cuts."

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great day!

Oh, this card is so nostalgic and just perfect for a tinking of you/missing you...! Love the black silouette on the warm sponged background and the masked sun with the flying birds! As you said, this card don't need anything else!! Great work!

Beautiful card Carol and I'm sure your SIL will cherish it. I love the peaceful scene you have created on this card and you are right, the birds are all that is needed on this scene. Hugs, Brenda

What a beautiful scene Carol and the colours are lovely. It's the perfect card for Thinking of you. I'm sure your sister will appreciate the thought you have given to the style of card as her husband's first Anniversary approaches. Barbxx

Splendid card for the SIL, Carol. We all hate those kind of anniversaries, but this should bring a smile. April is my bad month for these so I am just making it through.

It's a beautiful card for this particular occasion. Love your ombre sponging...you've done that so smoothly. I like the look of the birds flying towards the sun too. A wonderful die silhouette and that's a pretty gold on the sentiment. Is it the WOW? Well done, You! TFS & Hugs
