Never More than a Thought

Whimsical Words would have to have been my favourite of the Sale-a-Bration stamp sets that were available this year. The sentiments are so lovely and versatile. Living so far away from family and many friends, one in particular means more to me than the others.... "You're never more than a thought away"

I made this card for a friend and hostess who requested a Mother's Day card for her workshop - this was one of the options I offered her. Not strictly Mother's Day-ish, but I thought it could pass :) I wanted to keep the card quite simple too as there were a few people BRAND new to stamping joining us. Thus, it fits the current 'Keep It Simple, Sweetie' Challenge happening over at Stampin' Royalty. To make it even simpler in the workshop, I had planned to swap the Very Vanilla card for Whisper White and use the Pink Pirouette striped ribbon instead of card stock behind the sentiment, but this wasn't the chosen card.

As the sentiment is the focus, this card also fits the current challenge over at Pile It On, (which I discovered this week) 'No Images as Focal Point', plus using as many other challenges as possible. I have only teamed it with one other challenge, but it's a start :)

Thanks for visiting.
