Sending You Warm Thoughts

Hello there!  I am back to share with you the newest color combination for CR84FN56.  We have yellow, gray, and neutral to work with.  I made this for my Jr. High School boyfriend's mother.  She has Cancer and it has gone to her brain.  Unfortunately she had a seizure the other day and has to start radiation next week.  It was just last year when I went through this with my own mother so this brings back some sad feelings for me.  I know exactly how he feels right now.


I decided to stitch the ribbon in place since it was so close to the top of my mat layer.


Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/ Rustic Cream/Kraft
Patterned Paper: Theresa Collins/Everyday Moments
Stamps: PTI /Simple Sunflower, Mat Stack 5
Dies: Limitless Layers circles, Mat Stack 5, Simple Sunflower dies
Ink: PTI/ Smokey Shadow, Versa Magic/Thatched Straw&Wheat
Ribbon: Offray/Pewter
Twine: PTI Rustic White
