Thinking of you...

I saw this color combo on my friend Renee's blog and really liked it. I needed a masculine "thinking of you" card, so it was perfect. It is an Inkspiration's Color Challenge, so you should play along too! The colors to use for the challenge are: Sage Shadow, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. I used my Sanded background and also distressed the edges on the Chocolate Chip layers to give a more manly look. Vintage brads and Sage grosgrain ribbon finish off the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
