Thinking of you card using Papertrey Ink Spring Woods and HLS Thinking of You







Hello everyone and welcome to another Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge where we are asking for things with


and I came up with this card




I began by lightly blending a couple of colours of pan pastels on a square of card and then stenciled over it with one of the Papertrey Ink Modern Background stencils. I stamped and die cut the blossom bough and goldfinch from the PTI Spring Woods stamp and die set and arranged them over the background.




Next, I stamped, coloured and fussy cut a little butterfly from the Happy Little Stampers Thinking of You stamp set, and then stamped the sentiment from the same set. I matted the panel onto some pink card and raised it on the base card with some fun foam before finishing it off with a few yellow glittered enamel  dots.



and as it is
