Kind Thoughts - PPA166 Color Challenge

Today brings a wonderful color challenge from the talented team of designers over at Pals Paper Arts:

And here is my creation:

I needed to create a card to send to someone who has been down lately and I am hoping this will brighten her day! I recently received a beautiful handmade card in my mailbox out of the blue and I was just tickled so I have decided to pay it forward and actually MAIL more of my cards (a novel concept I know). AND I have noticed that I have been more inspired when I have a specific recipient in mind...

This card utilizes the "Too Kind" stamp set. This stamp set has a stem stamp in it with two stems but one of them was too straight for me so I inked up only the stem with a curve to it, stamped it using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig as my guide for placement, then turned the stamp upside down and used the same stem to create a curved stem going the other way. I stamped the blooms in Strawberry Slush but I stamped off first to create a softer stamped image. The sentiment is from the same set. Love when that happens!

A few Candy Dots in Daffodil Delight as accent and done! 15 minutes max. Now THAT makes me happy!

Did you happen to notice the lovely envelope liner? It was created using a new set of Framelits that are available in the Holiday Catalog which is live TODAY!! So easy to create and attach to the envelope. It is sized perfectly to slide right in, all the way to the bottom and it lines up perfectly with the adhesive on the envelope. e-z-peasy!!!
