A clean and simple Thinking of you



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Happy tuesday everyone!

It's time for a new challenge over at digital tuesday, this week Sharon is our hostess and she'd like to see the sentiment "Thinking of you" on our projects.

This week we are being sponsored by My Grafico, who kindly gave the Design Team the set "Sew long flower" by artist Cheri Wenger. The image I used is part of this beautiful set.


I decided to do a clean and simple card this time, I simply colored the image with derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil, and then adhered it to a "cuttlebugged" cardbase.
I added a (Martha Stewart) punched grass border to the card, embellished with some ribbon, and then I added a button to one of the flowers.
To finish it off I added some paper piercing.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up.

I am combining this card with the following challenges:
Hopefully you'll be able to join us this week! Our prize this week is a digistamp set of winner's choice from My Grafico, and a 20% discount to be used in their store.

Have a wonderful day!
