Thinking of You

Very last minute entry for the tone-on-tone challenge at A Blog Named Hero.  I used Distress Ink victorian velvet to color my paper, to stamp the flowers & to make the splatters.  I used the layout at Freshly Made Sketches.  The sentiment is from HA Thinking of You Messages & the flowers & die cuts are HA Bold Pop Designs. I used black Pico Embellisher for the dots in the flower centers.  I'm also entering CropStop.

I don't follow auto racing except for the Indy 500. My folks were both from Indianapolis, I was born there & my grandfather worked at the track as a young man, so it's always special to me.  Quite the race this year with an American rookie winning just before running out of gas--so fun! Enjoy the rest of your weekend & thanks so much for taking time to stop by my blog.

  8. What a pretty card. Monochromatic cards are so interesting to look at I think. I love the depth you've created using these shades of pink. Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  18. Tone on tone, I love it. Perfect name for the color-Victorian Velvet because it does have such an old world feel to it.
