Thinking Of You Card Using CTMH Basic Paper Fundamentals with Ching-Chou Kuik "Believe In Faith"

Hello friends.  It has been a little cooler in Southern CA for the past few days; but it is supposed to get hotter again by Friday.  How is your weather where you live?  Are you having time to create?  

I haven't been able to create much lately.  It is challenging when you are in pain; but I finally managed to get this one done in time for my DT on Monday.  It is lavender and grays, despite the fact that it looks blue.  LOL!  

I am using the new CTMH Basic Paper Fundamentals; which I fell in love with; the minute I saw them.  I don't normally like grays and browns; but this set of papers is absolutely stunning to me.  We have all new Basic cardstock in this new Annual Inspirations Idea book; plus all of our cardstock is two colors.  You will notice that I used the reverse side of my cardstock; as those are the new colors.  

It is time for another Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post.  I am using a new image called "Believe In Faith".  I thought this image was beautiful; but my card didn't quite reach what I had visioned for it.  LOL!
