Blog Hop for Janelle

This card is for Janelle to send her a little love.  Hopefully this will bring her some sunshine and smiles to her face.  If you don't know Janelle and her story, you can find her blog HERE!  Some lovely ladies organized a blog hop for her here so check out the other creations here.
I was inspired by a card I saw and searched in vain to link up.  I thought I had pinned it to my Pinterest board but apparently that is not the case ...  It had coloured inks stamped on kraft and looked GORGEOUS!!  Edited to add - just found the inspiration picture from the fabulous post on Paperella's blog.  Thank you for your idea!!  So I used that same idea and made my own card.  I used my Fresh Inks to stamp the butterflies and Jenni Bowlin fountain pen ink (black) for the sentiment.
The pigment inks look so beautiful on the textured kraft paper.  I got the paper from an office supply store in the sale section and love it.  It's not thick but the texture is really nice.
Janelle, know that we are all thinking of you and sending you hugs. <3  I sent you a card last week that should get there soon, hopefully.

Supplies:
Paper: Staples 110lb white, Meadowcroft Textured paper (toast)
Stamps: PTI Pretty Peonies, Think Big Favourites (sentiment selectively inked)
Ink: Fresh Inks (red currant, silver lilac, steel blue, pear, slate, provincial gray), Jenni Bowlin fountain pen
