THINKING OF YOU

Love this new dot flower pattern background from Hero Arts.  Decided to give Kathy's color challenge at Lily Pad Cards another try:


Used a pink that is a bit deeper than the color swatch; but Kathy does give us permission to interpret the colors in our own way.  I used some white embossing and colored pencil to detail the background.  The Martha Stewart butterfly punch is one of my favorites.  And, the new Hero Arts Say it All sentiments are so versatile.

Thanks for stopping by.

edit:  also entering this in the Hero Arts March challenge.

This is gorgeous, Joy! I have no idea how you made a two-coloured background with that stamp but it's amazing.
