Just Wanted You To Know ~ JAI153 & RS51

I made this card for Just Add Ink 153 and Retro Sketches 51
I love the color combo of anything with dark blue, especially the new Midnight Muse.  It's so rich and elegant looking.  I also thought this vintage looking designer paper would serve as a nice frame for the sketch for RS this week!  I had to add in the Midnight Muse banner in the paisly designer paper, just because it was a perfect match with the little yellow accents in it. 
To tie in the vintage feel, I used crochet trim and three different buttons, which makes it sort of shabby chic. 
The inside of the card says, I'm praying for you.  Unfortuately I've been in need of several sympathy cards lately and I've also had some orders for some, so that may be the theme I will be focusing on for a while. 
Here's a list of supplies....
Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Card Chatter-Sympathy
Paper: So Saffron, Midnight Muse, Print Party DP
Ink: So Saffron, Midnight Muse
Accessories: Crochet Trim, Assorted Buttons, Linen Thread, Blue Half Pearl
