Thinking of You....

Ok. So here is another card that I made in between funerals.. I have been coveting this set forever.. I actually held the stamp set "Thoughts and Prayers" in my hand for the first time when my friend Tomiannie ordered it in the Spring... So I selected "Thoughts and Prayers" as one of my choices from Sale-A-Bration rewards...

Don't you just love the new In-Color "Dusty Durango"! I played around with different greens to compliment the "Dusty Durango" and settled on Mellow Moss. I wanted to flowers to stand out a bit so I first stamped the image in "Mellow Moss" then in "Dusty Durango". I cut out the little D.D. flowers and glued them on with a small dot of Tombo Mono liquid glue.. When I glued them to the paper I only lightly touched them to the paper so they would stand of a bit.. This glue is Super strong and only need a little to hold tight.. The D.D. Paper was run throught the Big shot Machine. To add a few accents I added a few half pearls for the Stampin' Up Pretties Kit and adhered them with mini glue dots... To finish I used one of the little white flowers form the pretties kit and died it with "Dusty Durango" Ink Pad.. You don't need the ink refills to die the flowers I just used my "Aqua Painter" and picked up ink from the ink pad and brushed it on.. I colored the stem with the "Mellow Moss" stampin' Write marker. To create the Leaves I had cut them out of card stock and glued them on with Tombo glue... Finished with White Ribbon...

I was thrilled with the finished card. I hope you enjoyed visiting... Here is a full view of this great stamp set and where you can order it...
