*** Thinking of You ...in shades of brown ***

Hope your Sunday is one of relaxation and rest. Ours has been wonderful! A great Sunday service, a delicious [and unexpected] lunch with our daughters, son-in-law and grandkids, a good visit, [over coffee and pie],with both sets of parents and now some down time at home. We are so blessed.
I'd like to share a card with you that I made last night. It features one of the lovely, whimsical images by A Day For Daisies. This one actually a freebie a bit ago. [If you are not already a follower of theirs, you should be...as you can see by this image it is well worth it].
 
 
I decided to go with a brown colour scheme, maybe because it is now officially Fall. As usual, I coloured the image with Copic Markers. The main DPs are by Little Darlings, Chocolate Covered Cherry Collection. This pack was actually a prize that I won in a challenge last year. I also used some MME DP as well. I used 2 different Spellbinder dies; one to cut out the image, it's matting and the stamped sentiment [ Stampin' Up]; the other to cut out the pretty border edging, that goes diagonally on the card. The satin ribbon, [strips and bow], is a "salvaged piece" from a Bubble Bath gift pack. A single button as the bow center finishes this card up.
Well, that's it for now. Have a great evening.
hugs,
Nancy
