Pile It On #17 - Ink on Paper

I'm back at Pile It On.  And what a week I picked to come back.  Suffice it to say, things are a little crazy for me and this is going to be a very short post.

This week Pile It On is being sponsored by Rogue Redhead Designs.  They're offering the winner a $25 voucher.  Cool!

One day while I was on hiatus from Pile It On a package appeared in my mailbox.  It was filled with some gorgeous stamps that I hadn't ordered.  Because this sponsor was so generous I just had to make a card this week. This image is beautiful, it has such a restful feeling.  I decided to keep the embellishments simple so that I can send this to a fellow I know who can use a little encouragement.  But this card could easily be turned into a card for a woman.  Instead of a knot make a bow and put a little bling or flowers on it instead of the triangles and that's it.

Here's the deets:
