Harvest Wreath

This is a VERY old PSX stamp that I have had forever. I bought it when one of our local stamp stores was going out of business. I've always liked it but haven't used it until today. I have a friend who is home recouping from surgery and I needed a card to send her. Rather than something bright and funny, I decided to do something warm and cozy. With fall coming to Michigan and Southwestern Ontario, and a breeze in the air today, this was a perfect choice.

I stamped it on Neenah paper, coloured with copics, added a hint of blue shading with pencils and gamsol, distressed with ranger tea dye ink, mounted on papertrey brown paper that I frayed with the edge of my scissors and finally mounted on some Basic Grey and Memory Box papers. In the end I added a bright ribbon to punch it up. Although it's not a typical get well card, I hope she likes it! Get well soon Mary! You got a scrap room open house coming up!

Linda,

OMG it's beautiful! I LOVE it. Paula just left from her visit and told me to look on your blog. I've been so out of it and haven't been up to email. But I had to write to say thank you so much for thinking of me. I can't wait to see the card in person. See you in a few weeks! Mary.
