Sending Love with Hanging Garden

Hello Friends!

Today's card is clean and simple.  I colored it with pencils and ink with a blender pen, layered it onto a piece of Blueberry Bushel, tied some Blueberry Bushel ribbon around it, and layered onto a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock on a white cardstock base.

Hanging Garden, Watercolor and blender pens, Love and Support, Stampin' Up!

I have to admit I really struggled with this card, and in my opinion doesn't look as good as it did in my mind's eye.  Sometimes I think we try too hard to make every card extraordinary, but the fact is, juts leaving it alone sometimes is the best plan of action.

I did take the cloud stencil from Party Masks to add a little texture to the background.  I think that helped. Anyway, it's definitely going going into my favorites file, but I still think most people are happy to receive a handmade card of any kind, because that's the key...
Handmade..."I made this with my own 2 hands and I sent it to you because you are special". :)
