Thoughts & Prayers... Thinking of You

I just love the simple look of this card.....

I wanted to use the new 2014-16 In Color Striped Cotton Ribbon, 
and this is what I came up with...

We start our card with a Lost Lagoon card base, then added a layer of Very Vanilla card stock.

Then, the fun begins...

We used Clear Block D and inked it directly in the Soft Sky ink pad (Lost Lagoon ink was too dark, I tried it), then we stamped this on our card.  I love the look this technique provides!

Clear Block D  118485  $8.50

Next, we stamped that beautiful vine and the sentiment, Thinking of You, (from the Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set) in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  This is the perfect stamp set for so many occasions when you want to let someone know you're thinking about them - I love all of the sentiments in this set.

Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set  wood-mount  128751  $26.00
Thoughts & Prayers Stamp Set  clear-mount  127805  $19.00

Then, we added that strip of Lost Lagoon Striped Cotton Ribbon to the bottom of the card - there is something about the look of this ribbon that I just love....

Finally, we die-cut that awesome butterfly with our Bold Butterfly Framelits (make sure to put a piece of wax paper in between your card stock and the framelit - it makes it so much easier to work with!), adhered him to the ribbon directly with a Glue Dot, then added a few Pearls to the center of the butterfly

Bold Butterfly Framelits  138135  $17.00

Glue Dots  103683  $5.25

Pearl Basic Jewels  119247  $5.00

I hope you enjoyed this card!!

And....  I hope you have an Inkspired day!!
