A thoughtful message

Last but not least a card for a few special and comforting words. Can you thing of a better way to show someone how much you care and think of them than with a handmade card and some personal written words

I used a colonial white cardstock base in 4 1/4"x 5 1/2" for this card. A piece of desert sand cardstock was embossed and centered on the front of the card. Followed by a strip of black cardstock and a piece of design paper from Close To My Heart.

I used the "Fabulous You" (C1533) stamp set from Close To My Heart to stamp the cardinal image in chocolate ink. Three amber gems finish this element. A few foam dots and the cardinal is attached to the front. 
The phrase was stamped in cocoa ink on a strip of colonial white cardstock. I cut in the flag element and adhered it with foam dots to the card.
Since the phrase came in two parts, I decided to stamp the whole phrase on the inside of the card as well.

This is it for this months card class. If you are interested in purchasing a set of the February cards, please contact me.

I am already working on next months cards and some pages for a crop I will attend on March 22nd. So stay tuned for more fun things to come...

Next month we will have two classes so you get to enjoy 8 different cards. Don't forget to come back here often and I will try to keep writing frequently...
