You're On My Mind

>> Monday, April 11, 2011

Happy Monday to you all!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Are you enjoying all of the new Spring releases that became available last week?  Make sure to check them out if you haven't already.  I know I'm really enjoying my stamping time with them!

I created this "On My Mind" card over the weekend.  The focal image I used here is the Background Branch (721K). I didn't even know it was a "background" until I started writing this post. Regardless, colored with Copic Markers, it's made a lovely focal image for this sympathy or thinking of you card.

If you look closely, you'll also see that I clear embossed the white background with the brand new Polka Dot Background (688P). I then distressed the edges with light green ink which helped make the polka dots more visible. I stamped the Mind and Prayers Greeting (676F) with green ink at the bottom of the card front. Since I think simple is better for these types of cards, I kept the embellishments on the simple side: a few matching brads, a decorative border punch, and some elegant ribbon pulled everything together nicely.
Thanks for stopping by today!
