More Hopeful Thoughts

NB: I have removed my blog background for now as I was tipped off that it may be causing problems for some of you.
Another sympathy card... I seem to be using a lot of these at the moment, unfortunately. And I was very sorry to have to make this one for a fellow demonstrator who is going through a really tough time at the moment. But Hopeful Thoughts made the unfortunate task easy as it’s such a beautiful stamp set.

As you can see, I couldn’t resist a tiny butterfly – still obsessed with my Big Shot!

The card looks like Riding Hood Red but it’s actually my bad photography; it’s really Rose Red. But now I’m thinking Riding Hood Red would look great with Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz so, from one mistake comes a new colour combination!

Stamps: Hopeful Thoughts
Cardstock:  Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Rose Red
Accessories: 1/8” Taffeta ribbon – Daffodil Delight, Eyelet Border punch, Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslit die
