Everybody Art Challenge #100 Thoughts Of You

I am entering this in theEverybody Art Challenge which will be my first entry. When I saw that this weeks challenge was to use Blue which is my favorite color, I knew this was right up my alley. I decided to take out an older set from Stampin Up and make this card for my sister just to let her know I am thinking of her. This is one set that I will never part with. I usually drag out my brayer whenever I reach for this set, but decided to try making clouds using a scallop. I've seen this technique quite often but finally was inspired when I saw Jeanettes beautiful card and tutorial which can be found by following
this link

So thanks for the inspiration Jeanette.. and Sis this one's for you.

WOWzers! You really rocked those clouds! I never seem to get these right and you did them perfectly! I love your card, what a wonderful image and the clouds are truly the perfect finishing touch! It was so good to hear from you recently - hope all is well! I'm such a bad blogger :( never have enough time to visit my favorite people! My mid-year resolution is to try to change that!! Wish me luck! Awesome card Deb, I know your sister will love it! hugz, Mary
