S & S Midweek Throwdown Challenge - Thinking of You

Happy Easter everyone!  It has been a wonderful week of card making and relaxation.  I am sorry that I was unable to post updates on my projects but I wasn't able to take my laptop with me and the one I was borrowing just wasn't cooperating with me.  I hope to post several cards over the next few days though and I hope you will come back again and find some inspiration.

The S & S Midweek Throwdown Challenge this week is to make "Thinking of You" cards for our troops to send home to their friends and loved ones back in the States.

I made this card with that theme in mind using Stampin' Up! (SU!) Garden Silhouettes.  I stamped the image and words with Stazon Ink and then sponged SU! More Mustard and SU! Really Rust for the sunset effect.  I layered it with Black and Really Rust card stock and then attached it with dimensional mounting tape onto white card stock.  I also decorated the envelope to match as I like to do whenever possible.

Thanks for stopping by today and for leaving me a comment to let me know you were here.

Happy Stamping and God's Richest Blessings,
