A friend of mine recently lost her mother and I needed a simple but pretty card to send to her. This simple design is quick and easy to put together and could be easily adapted for any occasion. Soft Suede, one of the six current In Colors, looks wonderful when combined with Old Olive, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, and Very Vanilla. The stamped and matted image and sentiment are highlighted with a tiny dotted print in Old Olive from The Write Stuff Specialty Designer Series Paper. A pretty ribbon in a coordinating shade of purple is tied in a simple knot, adding the perfect balance to the overall design.
