Sniff sniff

My poor mum has been in bed with the lergy this past week so I thought this Lockhart Tissue box would be appropriate to make a card to cheer her up. It's awful when someone is ill and there's not a lot you can do to help, but a handmade card or gift brightens anyone's day!

I thought I'd combine it with the SCS Limited Supply Challenge from the Friday before last (LSC 188) - the challenge was to create a card using NO embellishments! What?!!

Image was cut and matted using Nesties and coloured with Copics. I used some of last year's SU! paper (retired but available while stocks last), Always Artichoke and So Saffron c/s. All sides were distressed with a distressing tool. I sponged Antique Linen Distress Ink on the edges (with Ranger's fabulous Ink Blending Tool) to soften it and rolled the corners down. Hard to resist adding any embellishments tho!!

Have a great week x
