Warm Thoughts...

I just found out recently that a very sweet lady and co-worker’s health has had her out sick for a couple of weeks. I thought this would be a good opportunity to send her a get well card. I used the SCS Clean and Simple Challenge #25 as the layout is really simple hence the name of the challenge. I had the colors in mind but when I put all the papers together it was kinda boring.
To spice it up a bit…I decided to add some interest by using a wood grain background stamp, added some texture with an embossing folder and dimension with foam tape. I’m happy with how it came out. It’s not overly bright, but it’s cheery. I hope it will put a smile on her face.

Please let me know what you think.
