Thinking of You


CCEE1313

Charlene Merrick gave the challenge this week at CCEE Stampers--Oldies But Goodies-pull out and use an old stamp (s) that you haven't used in a looooooooooong time!  My oldie is a Stampendous stamp set called Encouraging Words. I really like this set and thought I would use it for a sympathy card.

I went CAS/clean and simple for my card. I've colored the leaves with Copics and just added a sentiment and it is all finished.

I hope you will check out the rest of the team's cards and join us this week. It is always fun to drag out and use something that hasn't seen ink in a while.

I'm entering my card into these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge-Anything Goes
CAS213-Limited Supplies Challenge

Recipe:
Stamps-Stampendous/Encouraging Words
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories- Copics/G20, G21, G24
