The Best is Yet to Come

Hi!

I wanted to share a card that I made a few months back for my daughter.  When the school year begins, I always like to tuck a card of love and encouragement for her to look at in her backpack.  She keeps in a small pocket the whole year.

I love all the cutesy characters from Mama Elephant and wanted to use this image for her. The bokeh looking background was created by using the Ranger Mini Ink Applicator and alternately dabbing hues of blue Distress Ink  directly as a circle onto the card panel.

She loved it.  Always great to see her smile.

Haven’t played along in a challenge for so long.  I am including this card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Thinking of You.

Take care!
