You've Been On My Mind

Today finds me enjoying the sunshine coming through my window.  I love that my desk sits under the window and I can look out at the wonderful mountains that surround the area in which I live.  Some of them still have snow on the peaks and it is always possible that more snow will come at this time of the year.  As long as it stays there, I'm happy.

Here's a simple but pretty card I designed for two of my favorite challenges, Color Throwdown and The Sisterhood of Crafters.  The colors and the theme were prefect for each other.

Stamp(s):  Simple Strips Friendship (Taylored Expressions)
Ink(s):  Jet Black (Altenew)
Cardstock:  Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo, Smoky Slate, Whisper White
(Stampin' Up!)
Dies:  Simple Strips Die (Taylored Expressions); Teapot Die (Cheapo Dies)
Other:  From My Heart Faceted Gems (Stampin' Up!)

It's a simple card but I do love the simplicity of it.  It's one I'm adding to my stash of thinking of you cards.  I seem to send out more of those than other types of cards these days.  Birthday cards run a close second.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges.  For all the challenge details, click the image below.
