Going through my cards I realized that I dont have many thank you or just plain 'hello' cards. My goal is to change that in the next few weeks! I started my hello batch with this card, although I think I'll be mailing it off to my dad, who is currently battling cancer. He lives in Colorado and I cant be there right now, so I think this card would be a nice thing to send out, let him know that we are thinking of him 24/7.

I combined 2 challenges on this......the Clean and Simple Challenge from Splitcoast, where we were to incorporate designer paper, and then the Twilight Inspiration Color Challenge-Thoughts of Bella, where we had to use the colors Garnet,Phoenix Sky Blue and Forks Sky. I used the colors Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue and Sahara Sand.

For the CAS challenge the DSP is Sahara Sand, which also ties into the Twilight Challenge. The base of the card is Riding Hood Red,along with the sentiment and one of the birds. I used Bashful blue for the ribbon, the 2nd bird and for the cardstock mounted behind the Very Vanilla.

Haha, the more I look at the birds on the card the more I can see myself(the red bird) "talking" to my husband. Its like the blue bird is just sitting there taking it, ROFL!

Complete list of supplies:
Stamps-Cheep Talk
Paper-Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand DSP
Ink-Bashul Blue, Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa,Old Olive
Accessories-Ribbon from Wal-Mart,dimensionals,large oval punch
