So Kind So Thoughtful

Hello Everyone!!

I made this card last evening and I am not really sure if I like it or not. I did not intend for the colors to come out so dark. Even though I am not 100% happy with this card, I am still entering it in the Hero Arts Challenge for September. (The camera makes this card look lighter in color.) I distress white paper with Wild Honey, Barn Door, Walnut Stain, and Rustic Hinge. Then I stamped with the Design Block Thank You (S5026) in Rustic Hinge distress ink and then stamped the Real Leaves (CL457) stamp set in Walnut Stain distress ink. I roughed up the edges of the image and applied walnut stain ink to the roughed up edges with my blending tool. I added a ribbon and attached the stamped image to a 4 ¼ x 5 ½ mat that was stamped with Walnut stain ink using the Designer Wood Grain stamp (S5208). The last step was to attach the image to an egg shell color card base.

Note: I think that the Thank You stamp (S5026) could be discontinued because I could not find it on the Hero Arts site.

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate the comments. Have a great weekend and God Bless.
