"Thinking Of You'

Hi all :-)

I have made another 'Thinking of You' card using the lovely January Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp.  These cards are always difficult to make and recently a couple of my friends have lost dear ones. I am thinking of them at this sad time xx 

I made the background using a couple of colours of Simon's Exclusive Ink pads and a splattering of the Perfect Pearls Mist that I made using the powder and the little spritzer bottle that came in the kit. I did add a few drops of Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink to give the colour a little bit more depth. 
I also coloured the ribbon with the same ink so it would be a prefect match :-)

I love this kit ! Do you get them ? If so did you know that there are galleries on Simon's Blog where you can upload your creations. Lots of inspiration in there and it is lovely to see what everyone else creates using the kits :-)

 If you haven't subscribed then you should ! Because you're worth it ! :-)
