Pretty Thank You!

Last night and today I have been making Thank You cards for the folks who donate things to the Birthing Unit where I work. There is a small group of women who knit baby hats~ they are so sweet and each baby looks so beautiful in a handmade hat after the first bath!

The flower and sentiment are both from Serendipity Stamps, the set is called Bleeding Hearts 1114QCL~ http://www.serendipitystamps.com/

Th papers are both from Basic Grey Blue Bonnet from Oh Baby and Preston from Oh Baby Boy. I stamped the images in Versafine Onyx black, then colored the it in with Prisma markers. I did some shading on the leaves, but you'll have to enlarge the picture to see that. I roughed up the edges, then folded over one corner and tied some Linen thread from SU, then fuzzed it out a bit.

It is an A-6 card, but I had to make it bigger to see some of the flowers on the paper. Simple, but very pretty!

Beth - this is quietly stunning - I absolutely love it.
