Gifts of Kindness

Today's card comes from you via Terri's latest and extremely FABULOUS Stamp-a-Stack.  What a fun time that was.  We got to make 15 cards!!!  This was one of them.  Many times the cards I make are ones that I don't have the sets for and the set then ends up on my wishlist.  I eventually get it and then play with it for days!!! I guess that's a good sign, it means I purchased well, right?  LOL  This card was made using the "Gifts of Kindness" set.  I was not all that crazy about the flower in this set but once the pearls went on I really liked it.  I mostly wanted the set for all the words that come with it.  But it's way down on my wishlist because I have SO many other things I want.  But the set is working it's way closer to the top!

The colors used on this card are Smoky Slate and Strawberry Slush.  Strawberry Slush is one of my favorite in colors.  It runs a close tie with the Coastal Cabana.  I'm hoping to find some use for those colors this fall.  They just seem mostly like spring and summer colors.  

This is a very versatile card.  I can see using it as a birthday, thank you, thinking of you, get well or even a sympathy card.  

I also like how this card was designed too.  The base of the card is a piece of Whisper White cut at 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and folded in half along the long side.  It's SO pretty and very easy to make too!  Leave it to Terri to come up with such a pretty card!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
