Thoughts and Prayers

I had fun playing in the color challenge on SCS yesterday . . . CC209 - Basic Black, Rose Red and Always Artichoke. What a fun combo!! I'm not sure if I have ever used them together before!!!

Not only did I discover that the sentiment fits VERY nicely into the little curvy label piece from the Matchbox Bigz die, but I also used the little "corner bite" technique that I used last week on another card by taking the scallop circle punch and taking a "bite" out of each of the corners. I like to think I'm the one who made that up, but probably not!!

This is such a lovely stamp set, too! I know it is going to get lots of use at my house (not that I hope to have to do a bunch of sympathy-type cards, but I DO love the images!)!

Have a great "hump" day!!
