Thinking of you...

Is the theme of the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, showcasing Memory box.
It's almost a year ago my mother passed away and my first Christmas kinda sucked. I kept myself busy but I can relate to how it is a not so nice time for some people.

So I made kind of a Christmas card, but with a thinking of you sentiment from Stampendous (encouraging words).
For the circle I sued Memory Box  tree branch circle and cut it from a panel, slightly smaller than the cardbase.

Traced the opening on the cardbase, so I knew where to inkblend. I used Memento ink ( nautical blue, teal zeal and summer sky) and I spritzed it with water for a snowy effect
in the background. The sentiment is also stamped with Memento nautical blue as I felt black might be too stark. I did consider making the edges black around the  panel, but yeah I decided against it.

I diecut the retro deer from Simon Says Stamp out of brown card and stuck a red enamel dot on his nose as a little wink to the recipient. Maybe get a smile out of them.

I mounted the panel with foamtape and then tucked the deer under the trees, using tape runner.
