You Are In My Thoughts

I created another all-cardstock card, once again using my stamps to make my own patterned paper.

On this card I used the Universal Backgrounds and Rosy Regards stamp sets.

I still had my cardstock and inks out from creating yesterday's card and from all those colors, I picked out Pear and Lagoon for my main colors for today.  Love these colors together. 

I stamped the script background in Black ink onto Colonial White cardstock, and then stamped the roses in Lagoon ink and the leaves in Pear ink randomly to fill in the spaces.  With the denseness of the pattern of my background paper, it really makes the sentiment pop with all it's white space.

I made my bow in two pieces.  I wrapped a flat piece of ribbon around the card and adhered it in place with ScorTape.  And the bow I tied as a separate piece, then attached it in the center with ScorTape.  I like the look of bigger bows.  They're just fun. 

Hope you liked my card today.  Now why don't you pull out your stamps and make some randomed stamped papers???

Happy creating!  :)

I have some serious bow envy about right now! I practice, and I practice and it still just doesn't work for me. Love the card, and LOVE the bow!
