Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge

This month's blog hop had such a cute inspiration picture.  These shoes are precious.  The stripes and bright pop of color were what caught my attention.  I could not decide if the stripes in this picture were a dark grey or a blue, but either would make a lovely card. 

With this inspiration I made a couple of cards for a friend who has just found out she has cancer.  My heart goes out to her and I want her to know she is daily in my thoughts and prayers. 
The new Keep it Simple: Praying for you sentiments were perfect for the card above.

I added a grey ink pad to my supplies since I am discovering the value of neutral colors.  This one is Memento London Fog.  I used the PTI Stripes Diagonal die cut as a stencil to add the background grey stripes.

Products Used:
PTI Ombre Builders Stamp Set
PTI Brushed Blooms Stamp Set and dies
PTI Keep it Simple:Praying for you Stamp Set 
PTI Stripes Diagonal Die
PTI Big Hugs stamp Set and Dies
PTI Bloomers Stamp Set and Dies
PTI Meadow Greens Stamp Set
