I decided that this tree from "Thoughts and Prayers" would be the perfect fit for this particular sketch and that one of the sentiments would fit nicely into the circle. I haven't used much of this Bella Bleu DSP, so I thought I would pair the two together. I was shocked to learn that the SU! catalog suggested that Not Quite Navy was the matching blue for this paper. I just couldn't bring myself to stamp that tree in Not Quite Navy, so I started out stamping it in Vanilla. That was much too light, so I decided to emboss it in Gold! Isn't it beautiful? I had just been thinking to myself the other day that I don't emboss enough. The sentiment needed to be embossed as well. I punched it out using the 1 3/4 inch circle punch. I also added a simple bow of Kraft taffeta ribbon. I always love when I make a card that I normally *never* would have without some sort of challenge. This is one of those cards. I really like how it turned out in the end. I think this is the perfect kind of card to cheer some one up who is going through a hard time; simple, clean, elegant.
