Simply Thinking of You

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge: The challenge was 'Anything goes, but buttons and bows'.

Today's offering is very simple and quite quick to do. I always think that, as a cardmaker, there are sometimes occasions when we have to hold back and not throw everything we have at a card. 'Thinking of You' is one of those phrases that covers a multitude of situations, where any other sentiment is simply not appropriate.

The sentiment is stamped with Encore Gold and embossed with detail gold embossing powder. The panel was then cut and embossed. Each of the panels was mounted on matt gold card to try and keep an elegant feel to the card.

I love the texture and pattern of the cuttlebugged panel. I didn't think this card needed anything else. Sometimes you have to know when to stop! LOL.

Happy crafting,
