Warm Thoughts

Morning friends!!  Hoping by now you've all recovered from the holiday weekend!! 

I had to whip up a card for my our cousin's girlfriend who had a freak accident last week - she got hurt pretty badly and I wanted to send her a little cheer-up card.  She's a fun-lovin' gal - free and easy spirit, so I thought the Stamp of the Month image from Designed2Delight paired with this adorable sentiment from TLC would do the trick :)

Isn't that image amazing??  I just love it with that sentiment!!  I didn't have any Flower Soft or sand, but decided to emboss and distress lightly some Kraft paper for the illusion of sand in front of the embossed "wave" panel.  Both the image and sentiment were pop-dotted for dimension.

Medium:  Copic Markers
Image:  D2D
Sentiment:  TLC
Papers:  Bazzill cs, DCWV Happy Trails, Kraft
Prima flowers
Bo Bunny Candy Jewels
Making Memories Distress Ink
Fiskars Decorative Scissors
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot & Spots and Dots Embossing Folders
