You've Got This

Today I have a special card to share with you. Design, wise it is a Case of the card I shared yesterday  for Just Add Ink's colour challenge - you can see the original post here. Or just scroll down as it is the next one :-)
This card was made to surprise a special Uncle who is currently battling a serious medical condition and I was aiming for a mix of encouragement with a touch of humour. What do you think - was I successful?

The main changes...the colours - I swapped out the Delightful Dijon...for some Tangerine Tango and Tempting Turquoise. Still masculine and bright and cheery.
I also dropped the balloon numbers to 3 and changed the sentiment...the writing is on the wall. This so reminds me of a Pink Floyd song - I'm sure you can guess which one :-)

and the inside - keeping it simple.

Card stock: Basic Grey, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Soft Sky, Tempting Turquoise, Smoky Slate, Basic Grey, Tangerine Tango
Stamps: You've Got This, Balloon Celebrations
Accessories: Big shot, Brick Wall EF, Balloon Bouquet Punch, Basic rhinestones, Silver cording trim
Non -SU: Stacking Animals stamp set with matching Dies (Simon Says Stamps), Copics

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope that you can take encouragement from seeing that with a few simple changes,  you can create a card with a whole new look :-)

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Yep definitely a card full of encouragement and humour. Perfect for your uncle. It's a gorgeous image, and I love the bright blue birdie perched up top. xx

  2. Very pretty indeed and perfect for a masculine card. I hope your uncle gets better. Love the colors you swapped. Take care. xo
