cr84fn20: just wanted to say

Usually, the cards I’ve seen created from Hero Art’s Silhouette Grass and PTI’s Life sets have spoken to me. The projects tend to have a very welcoming feel to them. When I saw the challenge colors for CR84FN20, the silhouette cards made with those sets came to mind. Since I do not own either, I looked through what I do own to see if anything would work. Four sets of testing later, I came upon a stamp from a fall set that was a good substitute.

My mom has been sending out a large number of thank you cards lately and I’ve been trying to make some for her stash. So, in addition to the color parameters, the card needed to be fairly simple and require no extra postage to mail. I think it will meet with her approval.


paper:  vintage cream c/s (PTI); Nana’s Nursery (DCWV)
stamps:  Autumn Harvest (TPC Studio); Thank You Sayings (Hero Arts)
ink:  wisteria and lavender chalk (Clearsnap)
extras:  tanzanite crystals (Jolee’s)
