Thinking of You

I wanted to make a card for a blogging friend going through a sad time.  The beautiful Muse card gave me just the needed inspiration. I chose colors I think are peaceful, but also uplifting: Distress Ink bundled sage, PTI Mint Julep & Limeade Ice.
The images from PTI Meadow Greens are stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate using first & second generation. For the sentiment I used this very old one from Hero Arts & stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia. Finished off this one layer card with some hemp tied in a bow & rounded the top corners. I'm also entering Virginia's View & Word Art Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
