Fab Friday 12: Crazy You

This card was inspired by the Fab Friday Color Challenge (#12).  Being a SAHM, I have many friends who are in the same boat that I am - crazy stressed by their kids, work, life, etc.  And not all of them are into Craft Therapy the way I am.  Sometimes the smallest act of kindness can make all the difference.  I hope this card makes my fellow moms feel loved.

I love these soft cool colors together.  These colors would make a wonderful card for just about anything, but I wanted to make a card that I could use for any occasion.  This one will be perfect for so many of my friends.

In order to add the illusion of texture I did some digital embossing on the background.  By using a background stamp in the same color as the background and then adding a white drop shadow you can give the illusion of embossing.  And, with so many great stamps to choose from the embossed design options are endless.

Supplies: MDS2 (#130910), Fantabulous You (#129920), Autumn Elements (#127172)
