too kind.




Hello!

I have a 'just because' card...not DT, no sketch challenge...just because, well kinda sorta...


So I was on the hunt for a mass producible card for my girl to send as graduation thank you's.  Never mind that I had purchased some pretty sweet papers, I decided I wanted to stamp something that would be postal friendly too.

I've had Paper Smooches Crystal Clear for a smidge and hadn't inked it up yet.

**gasp**

So I went in search of inspiration and came across this STUNNING card by Kalyn Kepner.

I know, right?!

So, my card was totally and thoroughly inspired by her.

I used the following Fresh Inks:

Provincial
French Lavender
Silver Lilac

I had purchase that trio for another project I had in mind that never happened.  The purples are perfect for my girl that will be going to the University of Washington, their colors are Purple and Gold.

The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Chit Chat set.

The kraft tab on the top is upcycled from a cereal box.

Kind of a different color palette for me, eh?  I tend to be loud and proud but I'm liking this more quiet version of me...whaddya think?
