Sending you a smile...

A card of friendship given to a neighbour who was working through some health issues.  Simple yet stylish.  A thank you to Mary Fish, US Stampin Up demonstrator for her permission to case this card.

The photo doesn't really do this card justice as it was much brighter than the photo shows.  And please just close your eyes to the disorganisation in the background...a typical look when a card is completed.

The card base is Whisper white which is matted with basic black and topped with at-home rusty coloured textured cardstock.  The images from the Mostly Fowers stamp set were inked using Black Staz On Ink and then heat embossed leaving a high shine finish.  I had trouble getting the basic black ink to give a good coverage on these solid stamps, but the Staz On did it with ease!  The images were snipped out and attached with a SU dimension.  The card is finished off with basic black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and the sentiment is a rub on from the at-home stash.
Hope you like it.

Keep smiling......Ann
