Just wanted to say hello

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Stinkin’ Inkers and I’m happy to share a pretty ‘thinking of you’ type card for our Just Because challenge! A few weeks ago a friend commissioned me to create an uplifting card for her mother-in-law, and this is what I came up with. She said it fit the bill nicely and she loved it! Always like to hear those words!

I used a new Trinity Stamps Hello Friend stamp and die set. I absolutely love how this turned out – the colors are so vivid! I colored a couple sets of the flowers, and layered the main cluster on foam and then layered more of the flowers on top the base cluster for dimension. I used a dotted circle die and trellis frame die, as they are a couple of my favorites.

I left the inside blank so my friend could write her own message inside. I layered the panel on the dark purple cardstock and added a couple leftover colored die-cut elements from the front.
