Thoughts of Love (CCC#20)

Hello Happy Bloggers!
I hope you're having a great week so far. Mine is good...praying it stays that way. :)
Here's a card I made following a few challenges.


Crafty Critters Blog Group Challenge ~ Are You Green?
I went a few ways with this theme. All the cardstock on this card came from my scrap box including the base. The polka dot patterned paper is scrap from a recent recipe swap I did. The ribbon is a lonely little piece I found in my ribbon drawer. Okay, and then I went the way of using the color green with my patterned paper and ribbon.
Cute Card Thursday ~ Metal Mania
I used some vintage brads from an SU! package. I used my mat pack to line them up...I love that little gadget!
Paper Sundaes ~ Distress
I love using this technique. After distressing the c/s the image is stamped on, I sponged it with Soft Suede ink and Old Olive ink. I sponged the same colors on the punched piece.
The Pink Elephant ~ Sketch
I turned the sketch on it's side.
Paper Cutz ~ Get Well Card
Pile It On ~ Get Well Card

The stamp set is from SU! called Thoughts and Prayers. I inked the image with a Mellow Moss marker and a Rose Red marker.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Until next time...
Blessings...
