Believe in the Garden.....

I have recently had the sad job of making 50 thank you cards to be sent out to friends and family by my mother-in-law, thanking them for their thoughts and prayers on the untimely passing of my father-in-law.

So I reached for my favourite set from the new IBC, Just Believe, and with colours chosen by my MIL, this is what I came up with (this is just the first 20).

I wanted to keep them rather flat, to make posting them easier, and as requested, there was no ribbon, or frilly bits.  That was a bit of a challenge for me, (I love ribbon and frilly (ready blingy) bits!), so I went with the torn edge for interest and I'm pleased with the final design.  I used markers direct to rubber, to create the multi-coloured image.
