I found my family in a book

1, 2, 3, and I'm back in the room...
Despite my mojo struggling to get out, I have finally made a simple card.
To make it easy for myself, I stuck with my favourite paper and colours
(hmmm... will grey and orange work for Christmas cards?)  ;-)

This is for my friend, Debs. 
She reads anything and everything, so I thought this little Gorjuss girl,
"I found my family in a book"  would be perfect.
I used  grey ink for my sentiment, to make it look more washed out and the little heart embellie is
actually a house die from Clearly Besotted. 
I just coloured the heart orange and popped it back in the die cut.

I love this stamp - I actually have a print of "family" canvas in my kids room. :)
I like it in these grey and orange tones which compliment the chosen designer's paper so well.
Have a nice day...
