Thinking of my grandmother

Pixie Dust Studio-color challenge
Do You Stack Up-use your scraps
Totally Gorjuss-flowers, buttons, bows bingo
Cupcake Craft-buttons and bows

Well I had a challenge to use my scraps, so there is not a single piece of new paper, ribbon or twine on here, everything was from my scrap collection. Okay not the buttons or flowers lol. This flower and sentiment stamp are from the 97cent bin of Studio G stamps at Walmart. The yellow paper is this really cool textured paper. I stamped the flower in a permanent black ink, then colored in the flower part with prismacolor pencil, and then used the colorless blender by prismacolor to smooth it out. I stamped the kraft paper, then used my white pen from Sakura to color in the word you and go around the outside, I also used it to put stitches around the outside of my card. 
I am sending this to my grandmother. I havent seen her in a while since we moved and I am missing her and my grandfather. Hope she likes it.
