This week it is my turn to be the hostess for the CTD!! I chose these colors quickly, thinking they would be pretty together---but they really challenged me! Hopefully, the CTD team wasn't stumped by the combo, because they rose to the challenge with some beautiful creations!
I have a special friend who is going through a rough time right now, so I wanted to send her a card letting her know I was thinking of and praying for her. I love this willow tree image from Waltzingmouse, so I inked it up and went forward from there:
This card is a little larger than a standard card as I found some nice larger envelopes at a yard sale this summer! The image is stamped on Confetti white with Garden Green and Chocolate Chip; the RR panel is wheeled with the Friendly Words jumbo wheel and RR ink, and although it is hard to see, the card itself is wheeled with the Cornelli Lace jumbo wheel. The sentiment was too long for the card, so I cut it apart, stamped the word "Mindful" once on my scratch paper and then on my oval, and stamped the remaining portion full strength. I like that effect! I added a half circle scallop behind the circular image and some pearls for a soft effect. Here's the inside as well:
I hope this will bring her some cheer and comfort!
