International Blog Hop | Thinking of You

Welcome to this month's International Blog Highlight, our theme for September is Sympathy. It is a really sad time when our friends and family lose someone they love. As paper crafters we have a wonderful gift of being able to let them know that we are thinking of them by taking time to make them a very special card or project to show them we love them and are thinking of them during their difficult time. 

I've created the below card using the Colorful Seasons stamp set, capturing the essence of caring with the simple sentiment "Thinking of you"

Using a Sponge Dauber I applied Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz to the solid stamp for the small leaves, and heat embossed the sentiment with Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder. I heat embossed the outer layer of the card with Copper too.

The copper Trim used for the bow is so unique - you can keep it as a "solid" ribbon like I have around the card as well as tease it out like I have done for the bow, how versatile is that!

I would love if you could take the time to vote for my card at Kylie Bertucci's host page for this blog highlight,- The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project. You can do that by clicking on the icon below:
