Thinking of you!

Hi!

I am popping on quickly again! It seems I am a bit behind this week! Hard to believe that Easter is Sunday!

I have a Thinking of You card to share today! I realized I need more of these in my stash!
I started with a Kraft card base (yes again :-)!!!!) added some white paint to the edges. I then adhered a musical background patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Market Street Collection onto a piece of Spring Rain cardstock which was applied to the Kraft base.   A doily was cut and applied to the top edge of the applied layers.  A length of pink seam binding ribbon was wrapped around the center layers and tied into a fussy bow and embellished by adding a resin blue rose to the center. 
A vertical pink strip of cardstock was cut and stamped with a butterfly from PTI Love Lives Here in Versamark Ink for a subtle background appearance.  A sentiment was stamped in the lower right of that panel from Skipping Stones Designs Always Here. Lastly, a scalloped circle and butterfly were diecut from the coordinating PTI's Love Lives Here die collection and applied to the center.

I found my color inspiration from CR84FN.
I hope you have a fantastic rest of your day or night!
~Tammy~
