Thinking of You

I know.....TWO posts in one day for me is just unheard of!!!  However, I made this card for the Friday Mashup Challenge and really wanted to get it posted today...so, you get to see two cards in one day!

The theme of the Mashup is nature or embossing - or mash it up and use both.  I mashed mine and embossed the background panel with the Swiss Dots folder and used the tree image as "nature'.  I really think this is just one of my favorite stamp sets from SU - Thoughts and Prayers.  Such pretty images with this set.  I also used some Parisian Breeze DP - gorgeous stuff but no longer around so I'm hoarding it!  Card stock I used is Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake and White.  I tried sponging some color on  the white background around the tree - but that was just awful looking!  I liked the "clean" look better.

Thanks for stopping by.........and hope everyone is having a good week.
