Now that Valentines is over I wanted to use Need You image from Mo Manning to prove she could be used all year round and made a Thinking of You with a modern sentiment.
I had to cut her out making a white border since I knew I was going to put her directly onto patterned paper and it helps to see the image.
The papers are Echo Park Happy Birthday and I used a white strip with the tiny scallop border to give a nice finish between the two papers. A bit of ribbon with my flat bow, conscious of the charge for postage these days.
The flowers are from a die and the centres are a combination of punches and my Cropadile, using black to match the flowers on the floral paper. Sentiment is using Simon Says Stamp Sending die and matching stamps. The fish tail banner is made with using a square punch for the ends.
