Belle Toile

Happy Chinese New Year! My day started with a migraine, not fun. So once I kicked it I used the colour combo at Color Throwdown and the SCS sketch for this week to make a soft and soothing card. Stamping is always relaxing for me, it totally made me forget my head was hurting!

I finally used my beautiful Belle Toile background stamp. It's been sitting on the shelf waiting to be inked up for awhile now. I love it! I added the sentiment on a little tag so it can be easily changed if I need a quick card - I think this one would work for just about any occasion.

I've kept the inside blank for the moment in case I do need to use the card as a sympathy card or something else. Have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by!
