When I started this card I had in mind 'Thinking Of You', probably because it was Remembrance Sunday last weekend, hence the red 'poppy' colour :-) I think I managed to retrieve it though ,, :-)



A bit of a happy mistake here too, I stamped the Friend Definition image as a shadow using Hero Arts Soft Granite Ink and then decided to stamp the flower image too to create a shadow before stamping it again in white, but when I went to emboss some of the ink was still wet and some of the powder stuck to that too. I did think about starting again, but I really like this effect so I kept it as it was :-)

I used some Hero Arts Layering paper to make a matching envelope too ,,, I am really enjoying making and/or decorating coordinating envelopes :-)



So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!
