Thinking of you

I made this card for someone who is currently dealing with a bereavement. I got inspiration for it from a card by MASKerade that I saw on Pinterest. You can find it here. I just love her style. It is something about the simplicity of it that really works.

My card is nothing like as good of course but I thought I would try to replicate the fading ink stripe across the middle and I really love this tree from Lavinia Stamps. I put some colour on the tree with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and added a few sequins.

I notice on the photo that there is a black mark on one of the sequins - I have no idea what it is or how it got there. Unfortunately the card is now in the post so I can't re-do the photo, typical!

I am entering this card in the Addicted to CAs One Layer challenge 117. I hope the sequins don't give it too much bling for a CAS card. I did hum and har before adding them. Generally I tend to chicken out of adding such things in fear that I will ruin the card but this time I went for it.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today.

This is lovely, Hilary. I love the ink blended stripe and the wonderful mix of colors on the leaves. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to CAS.
