MISSING YOU

VLVMarWk3_2
Hi blogging friends. I made this card this weekend, but I have to admit, tonight I am posting it as I think about my son. We got our first letter from him today (yay, now we have an address for him) and he is doing ok.  He is doing the gas chamber tomorrow (Thursday). If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can see a video here.   Just click the dropdown arrow by “Making of a Soldier” and choose gas chamber. That just does not look like fun to me!
Well, enough of that. Let’s talk about the card! This card was made using the Viva la Verve Week 3 sketch along with a Verve sentiment and Doodle Pantry digital image and paper; however, I would first like to talk about the BG paper.
The BG was created using the Wrinkle Distress technique and Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  You are going to see quite a bit of his techniques from me over the next couple of weeks because I am taking his Creative Chemistry 101 on line class and boy is it fun!  This BG is not something I learned from the class, but I did learn from one of Tim Holtz’s videos.

Here you see a close up of the Verve sentiment and the Doodle Pantry image that I just adore.

The papers forming the center panel are the digi papers from Doodle Pantry.
