TST #60 Thinking of You

I am so happy with the sketch challenges that we are getting at Try Stampin on Tuesday.  Jen has been working really hard at these sketches and each week she manages to come up with another great challenge.

This week my card is made for a very special person.  A while back a co-worker retired and moved away. Unfortunately retirement has not been kind to her or her family.  Her husband was admitted last week to hospital for a very invasive surgery. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family with this Thinking of You card.
I knew as soon as I saw the sketch I wanted a soft elegance to my card so I started with a Whisper White base and then blended in a light shade of violet. The printed paper was faux stitched around the edges. Vintage Vogue was used to stamp on the front of the embossed label along with So Happy for You. After cutting out the tag using my Spellbinder Five Label Nestibilities I cut out an additional two of the violet and mounted them on to the back of the stamped and embossed front.  The label was raised using dimensionals  and the card was finished off with three small half pearls in the corner.

Yes we are all Thinking of You and hope for the very best!

Hope you enjoy!
