Thinking Of You

I have been combing through my coloured images and found this Thinking Of  You  image. I matted it with a snippet of gold and placed that on a scalloped square diecut I had on hand. I matted again with a fairly wide brown mat as I needed to make this image look large enough for a 5 1/2 inch square card! The tone on tone brown strip is an unknown DP from my bits box. While rummaging in there, I found this piece of hessian (burlap). It is actually a piece that has the little hole from the top of the hessian pack, but I hid that wee hole in my card design.

The background DP is from a kit I have had for 5 or maybe even 10 years! Now that is a VOS item!
I fussy cut some clocks and compasses from another snippet of DP... a snippet of 12x12 DP  left over from a scrapbook layout. I added them around the image and pop dotted the larger compass.

I am going to use this card as a notecard so have left the inside black. I will use it to write a letter to a friend.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets.

Hi Mo
thank you so much for sharing your wonderful card at Di's playground. I did giggle to myself when I read that you 'rummaged' in your craft stash - isn't it surprising what we find?!!!
Fabulous job in hiding the hole in your hessian - a true crafter!!

Oh I love this, there's so much going on - and with the tree, the texture and the "thinking of you" sentiment it would be perfect for the current challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz but you'd need to hurry as you only have until 6pm UK time to join in - the link is
