Sunday Stamps! # 279

 Hello, and happy Sunday to my crafty friends. I hope you are having a nice and relaxing weekend! Today, I am sharing a thinking of you card following this weeks new challenge at Sunday Stamps! using the Oceanfront and the Beauty of Friendship stamp sets.

Since I was following the colors in the new challenge at Sunday Stamps!, I changed the "water" image from the Oceanfront stamp set into a grass scene using Pear Pizzazz ink. 

I then added some grass images to it using Old Olive ink.
Next, I placed my Basic White cardstock piece into my Stamparatus and lined up the sky image over my grass and stamped it using Daffodil Delight ink followed by Calypso Coral ink to create a sunset sky above my grass.
To finish off my background, I stamped a few bird images from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set using Memento Black ink.

Next, I layered my completed scene onto an Old Olive frame made using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and followed by a die cut tree and the "thinking of you" sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set.

Here's this weeks new color challenge at Sunday Stamps!
